Let Go of Your Past: Silent Meditation Retreat
Meditations to shed the weight of the past, find peace, and move on with your life with wisdom and joy. Led by Buddhist monk Gen Zamling.
Time & Location
Oct 28, 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Wicker Park, 2010 W Pierce Ave, Chicago, IL 60622, USA
Holding onto painful experiences can harm us in so many ways, damaging our confidence and creativity, and limiting our ability to live life to the fullest. During this silent retreat, we will practice meditations on subtle impermanence to shed the weight of the past, find peace, and move on with our life with wisdom and joy.
Suitable for both beginners and seasoned practitioners, each session will include practical instruction and guided meditation. We will observe silence during our brief breaks to enhance our meditative experience. Join us at the end for an informal Q&A and light refreshments if you wish.
