Living with Integrity in a Challenging World

Led by Insight Meditation teacher
Nancy Taylor

Saturday, March 11th
9:30 am – 4:30 pm

We are happy to welcome Nancy back to Bozeman for a 4th year in a row.

About this Day

The Buddha taught the precepts to guide us in living a moral and ethical life. The benefit of living this way is useful to us in our daily lives, and it also has a tremendous effect on those around us. If we refrain from killing, stealing and hateful speech, we can live more peacefully and create an atmosphere of safety for those around us. Practicing in this way also deepens our Mindfulness Meditation Practice, sending us further down the path toward freedom and liberation.

Living without the precepts can cause tremendous suffering to ourselves, those around us and to the world.  We will explore the deeper meaning of the precepts and the concept of Sila, which teaches us how to live a moral and ethical life.

Please join us in exploring the dharma during periods of silent sitting and walking with teachings woven in throughout the day.

All are welcome.
Appropriate for those new to meditation and those with experience.

Registration

Click here to access online registration.
Online registration is preferred, but you may register at the door unless this page lists the retreat as “full.” We ask a registration fee to cover the costs of Nancy’s expenses and the costs of putting on the retreat. Our online registration will offer these options. Please opt for the fee that best suits your circumstances:

Base rate: $45
Student/Supportive rate: $ 25
Sustaining rate: $ 75

Scholarships are always available and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.
While we can take registrations and payments at the door, it helps to have as many people pre-paid as possible.

Dana – Support for the Teacher

The registration fee does not compensate the teacher for her or his teachings.  In keeping with the time-honored Buddhist tradition, we will collect “Dana” or a voluntary, anonymous donation – of whatever amount you feel is appropriate to your circumstances –  to support Nancy and express our gratitude for the teachings.
