PLEASE NOTE: DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME ENDS ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3RD. REMEMBER TO TURN YOUR CLOCKS BACK!
This two-day retreat will include guided and silent meditation in stillness and movement (walking and Qigong), dharmettes, and sharing in the temenos of affectionate silence and sincere goodwill.
We will dance between embodied mindfulness practice and touching into whatever difficulty in the landscapes of the body and the heart-mind arise during the day with wise compassion for ourselves and others. And we will be supported by the space of O2 and the surrounding land, by our wholesome intentions, and by each other.
Dori Langevin began practicing Vipassana meditation in 1985 and began teaching with Insight Meditation Community of Washington, D. C. at the invitation of Tara Brach in 2003. She graduated from the four-year Spirit Rock/Insight Meditation Society Teacher Training in 2010. Dori moved from the Washington DC area to Spokane, WA in 2007 where she shares the Buddhadharma both challenged and inspired by how together we can actualize these words of the Buddha by Reaching In through meditation and reflection and Reaching Out with wisdom and compassionate action:
Do no harm,
Act for the good,
Purify the mind.
This is the teaching of the Awakened.
~ Dhammapada 179-196
