In the Satipatthana Sutta, the Buddha gives us precise instructions of how to be mindful and what to be mindful of in a way that leads to freeing our hearts and minds from contraction and suffering. In this silent meditation retreat, open to both beginning and experienced meditators, we will explore this central Buddhist discourse dedicated to mindfulness meditation practice. Bringing in mindful movement and loving kindness meditation we will ground our practice in compassionate presence.
The retreat will be held at the Jesuit Spiritual Center of Milford, Ohio located north of Cincinnati on beautiful grounds next to the Little Miami River. All participants will have a single room, and vegetarian meals will be provided.
Both the seven day and the two day retreat are appropriate for those new to residential retreat as well as those more experienced. All are welcome to attend either retreat.
Registration will be open in late October. Please watch for updates on the Yellow Springs Dharma Center website at ysdharma.org.
