Imagine living with far less stress, distraction and mental busyness ... as well as the many daily problems these negative states of mind create! In short: you can, simply by retraining your mind. In this afternoon silent retreat, we will practice meditations to combat stress and overthinking so that you can become a more relaxed, focused, and positive person in everyday life.
During each session, Buddhist monk Gen Zamling will provide practical instruction and guide meditations you can practice anytime. You are welcome to ask any questions during the sessions.
We will encourage silence during the two brief breaks to promote greater mental peace and introspection. Following the retreat we will offer light refreshments, and you are invited to stay to socialize and relax if you wish.
No previous experience needed -- perfect for both beginners and seasoned meditators; absolutely everyone is welcome to attend.
