Sunday Morning Sitting Group
Each group includes 45 minutes of sitting and 45 minutes of conversation in which we share, in a context of spiritual friendship, our own exploration of truth and freedom in our lives. Not a teacher-led group. Please arrive on time and leave promptly as a courtesy to the group and to the host. The group usually meets on Sundays 10:00-11:30 a.m. at Robin Kassis’s home in North Amherst—but not always, if she is away. If you are interested in attending, please contact Robin beforehand to be certain of the venue and to ask if there is currently space in the group. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Enjoyment--A Winter Retreat
Friday 7-9 pm, Saturday 9 am-5 pm, & Sunday 9-noon
The Hitchcock Center, 845 West Street in Amherst
Registration: $75, plus dana for the teaching
In this retreat we will explore enjoyment as a path of letting go--enjoyment of breathing, of the body, of experience moment-to-moment. Enjoyment differs from our more common habits of seeking pleasure or comfort or trying to engineer experience to be what we want. Enjoyment is a natural way to calm and focus the mind and heart and soften willfulness and struggle in the practice. Come and enjoy a weekend of silence, presence, and heartfelt connection with your inner and outer environment.
