Saturday Shamatha Retreat

October 21, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Practicing Mindfulness Meditation is an eye-opener for many of us; after learning how to practice basic quiet sitting meditation (called Shamatha in Sanskrit), we discover our unseen thoughts and motivations and feel inspired to make changes in our lives.

This one-day retreat will give us a chance to focus on Dharma practice and deepen our connection to the basic sanity and goodness of sitting meditation.

KTC Meditation Instructor and Director Chuck Drake will lead meditation sessions. 

The program will be offered both in-person at KTC and via Zoom for our at-home Zoom audience and distance sangha.

Those attending in person should bring a sack lunch. Water, coffee, and tea will be provided.

To promote a mindful atmosphere, Functional Talking (i.e., only for essential quick communication) will be strongly encouraged.
