Learning to Let Go

DAY-LONG MEDITATION RETREAT
Saturday, November 30, 2019
9am-4pm
with Heather Fenton

Spend the day with us in quiet contemplation. A day-long retreat can be surprisingly refreshing and insightful!

“Learning to Let Go” will be an exploration of the connection between the feeling tone (vedana) of our experience and the development of craving and clinging. When pleasant feelings arise, we crave ‘more,’ when unpleasant feelings arise, we react with resistance, ‘craving/clinging’ to being rid of them as soon as possible, and when neutral feelings arise, we tend to ignore our experience, missing the opportunity to be fully awake and aware.
