Daylong in Los Altos – What is your state of mind?
September 19, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm| By Donation.
A day of meditation with Shaila Catherine.
Although meditation is renowned for promoting tranquility and mental calmness, meditation is not passive. Investigative methods play a vital role in the skillful development of liberating insight.
Today’s program will encourage self-examination and self-reflection to recognize the state of our own minds during meditation and activity. The teaching will be based on a text found in the Numerical Discourses (Sutta 10:51-52) that emphasizes the importance of self-examination.
This day-long program will include sitting and walking meditation, instructions, teachings, and opportunities for individual meetings with the teacher. This practice day is appropriate for new and experienced meditators, drop-in participants, and dedicated Walking the Path members. Beginners are especially encouraged to attend the morning sessions when more meditation instruction is offered.
There will be a pot-luck community meal at 12:30; please bring a food dish to share.
Everyone is welcome. Chairs are provided. Bring a cushion and mat if you prefer to sit on the floor.
