Insight Meditation Daylong

More intensive periods of formal meditation practice are excellent opportunities to unplug from technology, deepen our practice, and build momentum. The day will include lightly guided and silent meditation, alternating periods of sitting and walking, and Dharma reflections by the teacher. This is suitable for experienced practitioners, as well as practitioners who have completed an intro to mindfulness meditation course or the equivalent. Some sign-up slots will be available to discuss your practice privately.
