Peaceful Mind, Open Heart
Mar 8-10, 2013
We are happy to announce that our Sangha is organizing our first weekend retreat!
Peaceful Mind, Open Heart: Meditation and Dharma for Busy Lives
with Dr. Cheryl Fraser
Friday, March 8 - Sunday, March 10, 2013
at the Bethlehem Retreat Centre
2371 Arbot Road, Nanaimo, BC
The Buddha was arguably the first psychologist. He taught us how to directly experience our minds, thoughts, and emotions. Through cultivating awareness of our mind, we can reduce distress and increase calm and happiness.
This weekend will focus on insight meditation and Metta practice. It will be a silent residential retreat with some guided meditation and Dharma talks.
Registrations with a deposit cheque and a post-dated final payment cheque must be received by December 20, 2012. This guarantees the space at the Bethlehem Retreat Centre.
Space is very limited, so if you would like to attend, please send your registration forms in early.
Total Cost: $215
$50 non-refundable deposit due by December 20, 2012.
