In keeping with the spirit of resolutions for the new year, this class/retreat day will be an overview of the Buddha's path to liberation -- ethical training, mental discipline, and understanding of wisdom -- suitable for both beginners and long term practitioner —with the goal of inspiring renewed zeal and dedication to practice.
We will share our personal intentions for the new year and have ample time for review of instructions and practice of meditation. The emphasis in the teaching for the day will be the inherent connection of the practice of ethics to the deepening of wisdom. Much of the day will be in silence, reviewing and practicing techniques to strengthen concentration and clarify mindfulness.
Bring your lunch and your journal (or notepad) to record your resolves.
