    Please join us for this Half Daylong Retreat on December 14, led by Bryan Hindert with a focus on Mindfulness Practices to Nourish and Refresh


    Although this time of year has much potential for highlighting positive qualities of our minds such as joy, connection, generosity, good will, love, and compassion, the tendency in our culture can often be to turn our holiday season into a time of stress and difficulty.  Please join us for a half day retreat to stop the trend toward negative mind-states, and instead nourish our capacity for being at ease in the present moment - however that moment is manifesting

     

    We will spend the mourning refreshing, renewing, and nourishing our minds by practicing some simple mindfulness practices taught by the Buddha in the Sutra on the Four Establishments of Mindfulness.  We will also discuss how to bring these practices into our activities over the holiday season so that we can water seeds of joy in ourselves and those around us in the months to come.


    Our half day will involve sitting and walking mindfulness meditation, and a teaching and discussion. Participants are requested to please respect and appreciate noble silence during the duration of the formal activities of the morning. 

     

    While this event is free and open to all practitioners, it is necessary to register in advance. Your generosity in providing a donation or Dana for the use of the facility and the support of FCM is gratefully accepted and encouraged, and can be made online or at the door.

    Please join us for a Half Day Retreat on Saturday, September 28 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., in Naples, Florida at the Inner Light Center, 4810 Hickory Wood Dr., Naples, FL 34119.


    This half day of silence will include a Dharma talk by Diane Powell, and periods of sitting and walking meditation.  Please bring your own cushion if you have one. Extra cushions, as well as chairs, will also be available.


    While this event is free and open to all practitioners, it is necessary to register in advance to help with our planning and set-up.  Because many people have expressed a desire to make donations online rather than bringing cash or a check to the Half Day Retreat, we offer several registration options that permit an online donation. However, please understand that you do not need to make an online donation to register and that we welcome any support you may wish to offer at the Half Day Retreat itself. Your generosity in providing a donation or "Dana" for the support of our teacher and Practice Center is greatly appreciated.


    PLEASE NOTE: We have space limitations and have generally had a waiting list for our Naples Half Day Retreats. Out of consideration for others who would like to attend, please notify us at least 24 hours before the Half Day Retreat if you will be unable to attend so that we can fill the space. Instructions for canceling will be in the confirmation email you will receive when you register.
