Day of Mindfulness – August 2018
August 11 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Meditation retreat with Bhante Yogavacara Rahula, Saturday, August 11, from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm at Lion of Wisdom Meditation Center, Gaithersburg.
Lunch and tea will be provided.
There is no charge but freewill donations are gratefully accepted.
These retreats will 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 will have a large meditation hall on the ground floor. The middle floor will have two dormitory rooms for men; the upper floor will have two dormitory rooms for women. In the future we hope to have a block of individual kutis ‘meditation cells’ for persons wanting to make a longer term personal retreat.
People coming to this center for retreats will observe the eight precepts including the training of not eating solid food after the noon meal.
The retreat facility is still much a work in progress to make it suitable for housing retreatants. It will not be fully functioning until next April. 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.
May all beings be well, peaceful and wise!
