Sat, Jul 28 - Sat, Jul 28Peter Williams Meditation Daylong: The All-Weather Heart of Compassion and Joy, 3034760726
Insight Meditation Retreat. If you plan to attend, please email Peter at . We like being open, interested, and kind. We can usually access these states when life is going well, but often lose the ability in the face of difficulty. How can we develop an all-weather heart, ready for any circumstance? The answer lies in the meditative cultivation of awakening, particularly through the two Buddhist practices of sympathetic joy and compassion. Through them we learn to meet suffering with compassion and happiness with celebration. The practices together break down the duality between joy and sorrow and uncover the wise heart, which rests in natural well-being no matter what is happening. Suggested donation $70. Time: 8:45 am - 5:30 pm. Location: Columbine Unity Church, 8900 Arapahoe Rd., Boulder. This retreat is open to both beginning and experienced meditators. The retreat will be held in silence, and will include sitting and walking meditation, instruction, and dharma talks. Peter Williams has practiced Buddhist meditation for 25 years and has taught since 2003. He has completed the Community Dharma Leader training through Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Peter teaches retreats in the Rocky Mountain West and leads weekly meditation groups in Boulder, CO. He is one of the founders of Rocky Mountain Ecodharma Retreat Center. Learn More...
