In this technological age, it is so easy to spend our time hurrying through life, multi-tasking and spreading our attention so thinly that we are not fully present with anything we do. During this daylong together we will focus on bringing our attention back to the present experience of this body and breath - rediscovering the brightness and simplicity that is always available in this moment, when we remember to look.
There will be guided sitting and walking meditation, Dhamma reflections, a shared meal and opportunities for Q&A.
Lunch: Please bring lunch to share and food to offer the nuns, if you wish; they will bring their alms bowls and you will have an opportunity to make offerings to the bhikkhunis as part of this monastic day of practice. If you would like to bring food or other offerings, these would be welcomed by the Aloka Vihara community - this is entirely optional. A current list of needed items is obtainable by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on Aloka Vihara and the Saranloka Foundation, please visit their website at www.saranaloka.org.
