New Years for Trees: Sunday Morning Tu Bishvat Meditation

Join Aaron, Paul and Andi for a morning of mindfulness and meditation to get ready for Tu BiShvat, which will begin in the evening after the morning’s retreat. There will be instructions suitable for first-time or long-time meditators, chanting, sitting and teachings as a way to get us connected with sap rising in the trees around us.

The space will be held in “social silence”, meaning we will try to drop fully into reflective practice, without being distracted by conversation, until the end of the morning’s retreat.

The mindful morning will be followed by a social dairy potluck lunch.

The program is offered free of charge and donations (dana) for the teachers will be requested, from those inspired to give, at the end.

Schedule
10:00am – 10:30am – Registration, tea
