Weekend Retreat: Befriending the Mind/Heart

Christina Feldman
with Christina Feldman

10/21/2017 9:00 AM - 10/22/2017 4:30 PM (Saturday and Sunday) at Seattle Insight Meditation Center, (2729 6th Ave. S., Seattle, 98134) (Map It)

Each day of this retreat begins at 9:00am and ends at 4:30pm.

This weekend will be a study/practice retreat with periods of formal practice and periods of teaching rooted in several early discourses that focus upon what it means to cultivate a mind/heart that is a friend and what obstructs the clarity and spaciousness possible for us.  The weekend will be held in a background of silence with times for questions/reflection.
