I would like to remind you that we are a month away from our All Day Silent Retreat at Myakka River State Park. Come and join us for this wonderful experience. No previous experience with meditation is necessary and an intro on how to meditate will be available.
We will start promptly at 10:00 a.m. Arrive one-half hour early for the intro. The retreat will be in silence. There will be several sitting and walking meditations during the day, Dharma talks, and a vegetarian potluck lunch. Tea will be served. The retreat will be over at 5:00 p.m. A Precepts Ceremony will be held at the end of the retreat. Retreat participants are encouraged to stay and witness the ceremony. The five Buddhist Precepts are a set of guidelines for those who wish to do no harm and commit to their practice. We currently have 7 participants wishing to receive Precepts. Advanced registration no later than November 10, 2023, is required to take the precepts. There is no set fee to attend, however, a suggested donation of $25.00 will help us defray our costs.
Please register here, as space is limited and RSVP is required.
In this Podcast, I offered some insights from my Zen Buddhist background into living a good life. In these troubling times, it seems appropriate to post it again!
