One-Day Retreat with Gareth Young

Saturday, May 20th, 2023, from 9:00 to 5:00 

Please join Gareth on May 20th for a day of meditation.

The center of our practice is not study of books, listening to talks, or discussing the dharma. While these can certainly be very helpful (and we support all of those practices at Red Clay Sangha), the heart of our practice is the study of the self, which we must do on our own. This retreat offers space to do just that: a day of silence to sit, to walk, and to reflect. No talks and no talking! The day will have alternating sitting and walking periods of approximately 30 minutes, with a break mid-morning and mid-afternoon for rest, taking a stroll, or journalling. There will also be a break at around midday for lunch.

All are welcome, no previous experience with meditation required.

Gareth Young is a meditation teacher and co-founder and guiding teacher of Red Clay Sangha. He has maintained a committed meditation practice for over 20 years in the Zen and Vipassana traditions

Gareth received full teaching authorization in the Thai Forest lineage of Ajahn Chah, Jack Kornfield and Lisa Ernst. He lives in the Atlanta area with his wife and their dogs, chickens and bees. He has two adult children.

Cost:  This Retreat is freely offered. If you wish to offer dana, Gareth has asked that you please direct it to Red Clay Sangha.

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 and via Zoom (using the regular Red Clay Zoom link on our home page). 

Lunch  If attending in person, please bring a box lunch for yourself.  We will provide refrigeration space.  There will enough time to prepare lunch, if you are attending via Zoom and not at the Sangha.
