Oren Jay Sofer's Retreat
June 19-21, 2020!
Daylong Retreat on Saturday, February 22, 2020
from 10am-4pm at Brownell Talbot School.
This Daylong Retreat will focus on the mindfulness and insight meditation practices that awaken wisdom and compassion.
By simply observing our bodies and minds, we begin to know experience as it presents itself. As understanding deepens, we learn to live life with a wiser and more loving heart. Led by Vinny Ferraro the program’s aim will be guiding us toward developing a personal practice of coming home, and a greater sense of how to care for ourselves. Strengthening our own understanding, enabling us to use everything in life as food for freedom.
The program will guide participants in practicing mindfulness in many different modalities -- sitting, walking and sharing in a small group setting.
Teachings are freely offered at no charge, but registration by February 20 is required and space is limited. Teacher donations encouraged at the retreat. Cushions, chairs, benches, blankets, water and tea will be available.
