Buddhism and the Brain: Meditation and Daily Life
CORRECT TIME for this event is 9:30 AM – 4 PM
Modern neuroscience confirms the Buddha’s insights about the mind and how to find freedom and happiness. It also gives us some more tools for our practice toolbox. This day will combine sitting and walking meditation with several short talks throughout the day, exploring the integration of brain science and Buddhist concepts. There will be opportunities for questions and answers. This day is suitable for beginning and advanced meditators.
There is no charge to attend the retreat. The generosity of your donation will go to O2 Yoga and help support the teacher.
Kathy Schwerin is substituting for Amita Schmidt, who had to cancel her visit. Kathy began her Buddhist practice on an extended trip to Asia in 1986-87. Never tiring of Buddha images and wanting to have the friendly ease embodied by the Buddhists she met, she was further inspired by a man who was learning meditation so that he could be a wise old man. Returning home, she read Being Peace, by Thich Nhat Hanh, which showed her the path of inner peace is not separate from peace in the world. She went on to be a co-founder and Community Dharma Leader of Dharma Zephyr Insight Meditation Community, as well as a psychotherapist in private practice (currently not accepting new clients). She blogs at AMindfulBreath.com . Contact her at Kathy@dharmazephyr.org.
