A Day of Silence and Meditation

(A One-Day Retreat with Gareth Young)

Saturday, October 21, from  8:30 to 5:30 

In Person (Hospital Drive) and on Zoom

Please join Gareth on October 21st for a day of meditation.

This retreat offers a day of silence to sit, to walk, and to reflect. There will be no dharma talks, no Q&A and no talking! The day will have alternating sitting and walking periods of approximately 30 minutes, with a break at around midday for lunch.

All are welcome.

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

What to expect 

After a brief introduction to the day, we will enter noble silence for the remainder of our time together, and alternate periods of sitting and walking meditation during the day. There will be a one hour lunch break at midday. There will be no dharma talk, discussion, or guided meditations, and no time formally set aside for breaks. If you do want to take a break during the day, please do so - but again, being mindful of others.

While participation for the full day is encouraged, for those who can only attend for a portion of the day, please feel free to do so - just be mindful of others, entering and leaving quietly...and if you would let Gareth know ahead of time your anticipated attendance, it would be helpful.

Cost There is no cost to attend this retreat. Donations to Red Clay Sangha are gratefully received.

Location At Red Clay Sangha's physical space on Hospital Drive and our usual Zoom account (link here).

Food Please bring a packed lunch. We have a refrigerator on premise for you to keep items cold.
