Room: Online Via Zoom

The turn of the year can be a challenging time for many of us, with only short hours of daylight within which to pause and take stock. COVID  and our mandala may present other trials. For many years LSMC have offered an end-of year retreat which presents us with an opportunity to  rediscover our own individual original inspiration. Precisely at this time  we can find renewed strength and consolation in our practice. Please join us once again to explore how we can approach the new year with a spirit of courage and adventure. There will be daily guided instruction & short talks about Shamatha-Vipashyana meditation. There will also be opportunities for one-on-one meditation interviews. 10.00 to 17.30 on Dec 29, 30 and 31.

Suitable both for beginners - i.e. those new to meditation - and also for experienced meditators alike.
While pre-payment should happen by December 28th, please indicate your interest asap: if we can get some idea of numbers, this will help us arrange for the retreat to be adequately staffed
