Wisdom, Compassion And Presence In Challenging Times

with visiting Insight Meditation teachers

Kamala Masters

Friday, February 16th – Sunday, February 18th, 2018

In this weekend retreat, we will focus on cultivating a quality of conscious presence that embraces our heart, mind and body with compassion and wisdom.  The time we have together will be used wisely… learning and practicing how awareness can open to the joys and sorrows of life. In doing so, we are confident of an ever-increasing sensitivity, stability and kindness—within ourselves, and in relationship to all of life around us.

This retreat is open to both new and experienced meditators.  The weekend will be held in noble silence, except for appointed times of questions and discussion about our meditation practice. There will be guided mindfulness and loving-kindness sitting meditations, as well as alternate periods of silent walking meditation.  Everyone is welcome.

Both teachers will also give an evening talk open to the general public at a special session of the Bozeman Insight Community from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm on Thursday February 15th.  All are welcome.
