A half-day retreat with alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation and sequential instructions in mindfulness practice. There will be direction in mindfulness of the breath, body, emotions, thoughts, and broader patterns of experience, both more personal and more universal.
This half-day will be held mostly in silence with some short talks, and will generally focus on establishing more firmly a mindfulness practice, both on the cushion and in the flow of daily life.
