Days of Mindfulness with Bhante Yogavacara Rahula, Saturday August 23, from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm at Lion of Wisdom Meditation Center, Gaithersburg.
Bring a bag lunch or a dish to share pot luck style; tea will be provided.
There is no charge but freewill donations are gratefully accepted.
These Days of Mindfulness consist of guided instructions in the practice of body centered mindfulness and vipassana meditation and will incorporate some yoga breathing and stretching exercises to help facilitate a mindful connection to present moment awareness.
The main house has a large meditation hall on the ground floor. The middle floor has a dormitory room with bunkbeds for men; the upper floor has two dormitory rooms for women.
People coming for overnight retreats will observe the eight precepts including the training of not eating solid food after the noon meal.
The retreat facility is still a work in progress to make it suitable for housing retreatants. we hope to have our first overnight retreat this fall/winter. Until then we encourage donations in both cash and skills, volunteering to come to the center from time to time to help in ongoing work such as building remodeling, grounds/ garden to help this most worthwhile project. Please keep checking this website for updates and announcements. On the Support page there is facility to make a donation to support the center by PayPal.
May all beings be well, peaceful and wise!
