A Day-Long Retreat with Pat Coffey
October 20th, 2012
9:00 to 3:30
The emphasis of this retreat will be on the cultivation of tranquility that brings deep peace, calm and unity of heart, mind and body. It is the foundation for profound transformation and deep insight. This form of practice has been utilized by practitioners as one method of access to the meditative absorptions or jhana described and taught by the Buddha. You are invited to explore and enjoy this extraordinary practice.
Although the experience of this method is profound, the actual
technique is not difficult and is suitable for both advanced and
beginning practitioners. Instructions will be given such that even
first time meditators will have success in learning and practicing.
The day will primarily be in silence with periods of sitting and
walking meditation. There will be Q&A sessions and a talk give given by Pat.
The suggested donation is $35 to $55. However, no one will be refused admission due to lack of funds.
Please arrive a little early so we can begin promptly at 9. Bring bag lunch. There are comfortable chairs but bring any meditation pillows etc if you wish to sit on the carpeted floor.
