A Daylong Retreat
with Larry Yang:
for an Open,
Saturday, January 25, 9:30am - 4:30pm
Mindfulness meditation practice creates
expansiveness and openness in our day-to-day lives.
A spacious mindfulness practice can benefit a sense
of larger perspective, bigger picture, and broader
landscape that often can soothe the mind and calm
the heart. The invitation is to be present one more
moment, one more hour, one more day -- to allow the
boundless qualities of Life to arise and remind us
that a clear mind and open heart are possible even in
the most complicated circumstances.
Mindfulness will be experienced through silent
sitting, walking, movement, and eating meditations.
Open to all levels of meditation-new, beginner, or
experienced. You do not have to call yourself a
Buddhist to benefit from meditation. Please join us,
get on a cushion or chair, settle your mind, keep your
heart open, and see what you discover!
This retreat will be held in Rancho Mirage at the
Unitarian Universalist Church of the Desert
