This Beautiful Practice

A One-Day In Town Retreat with Gareth Young

Saturday, March 7, 2020, from 8:45 to 5:00 

This Beautiful Practice Much of our conversation about Buddhist practice relates to cultivating wise and compassionate living, as well as calming ourselves and not getting caught up in what's going on around us! It's easy to focus on this "practical" side of Buddhism, and to forget that the practice itself is exquisitely beautiful. Referring to early Buddhist texts - the Anapanasati Sutta and the Satipatthana Sutta - Gareth will encourage retreatants to find the wonder and beauty in the practice itself and to explore and attend to it for themselves.

Cost  The retreat fee of $10 is to cover the cost of the lunch and a modest donation to Red Clay Sangha.

Gareth Young has been with Red Clay Sangha since its founding. He has studied in both the Zen and Insight traditions and his practice is informed by these and other branches of Buddhism, as well other spiritual practices and teachings from other faiths. His approach to practice is intentionally open and welcoming.

What to expect  This will be a full day of sitting and walking meditation practice, with time for group discussions. All are welcome, no previous experience with meditation required.

What to bring?  Wear comfortable clothing. We have plenty of floor cushions and chairs. OR, if you prefer your own you may bring a cushion or chair. Our space is air conditioned, you might want to bring a light sweater or light blanket. 

Facility  This retreat will be held at our main location in Chamblee, Georgia. more...
