The retreat on June 17th, 2017, will be hosted by Insight Meditation of the Mid-Columbia. Dori Langevin will lead a daylong Insight Meditation retreat. The title of this retreat will be "Reaching In and Reaching Out." Guided by the Buddha's suggestions to "Do No Harm, Act for the Good, and Purify the Mind,” we will turn inward to explore feeling tone as a crucial intervention in the cycle of suffering, and how purifying the mind is the necessary preparation to speak and act with wisdom and compassion. Registration for the retreat will open in mid-May.
The retreat will be held at Shalom UCC, 505 McMurray Street in Richland. There will be a $10 fee to attend the retreat, and donations to the retreat leader are encouraged. Participants should bring their own lunch, and kitchen facilities will be available. There are also several places to eat within walking distance. The retreat will be a daylong silent meditation retreat that will start at 9:00 am and last till 4:30 pm.The retreat will include both seated and walking meditation as well as qigong (a movement meditation form) and will be suitable for both beginning and experienced meditation students.
