Returning to Natural Response
A one-day meditation retreat with Cherry Zimmer

Spend a day in seated and walking meditation with Red Clay Sangha, led by Cherry Zimmer.

How often do we think of our human selves in an unfavorable light, as unnatural or against nature and see the natural world as something separate? In this retreat we will cultivate an openness to our own place in nature and learn to see each other and our own selves in a natural light. We will acknowledge our aspiration to make a truly human natural response to life!

We will start the day with meditation instructions followed by 25 minute periods of seated meditation and 5 minute periods of walking meditation. Weather permitting, we will have outdoor walking meditation. 

If you are new to meditation practice and find the sitting periods too difficult, you are welcome to quietly take a break. Scheduled breaks are short due to the limited space; if you need extra time please take it when you need it. 

Please maintain silence. 

This retreat will be held at the Self Discovery Center, 1315 South Ponce DeLeon Ave, Atlanta, GA 30306 (near Ponce and Highland). more...

We have chairs and floor cushions (zafus and zabutons). If you prefer your own or a bench you are welcome to bring them. Please bring a vegetarian sack lunch (refrigerator is available) and a coffee/tea cup.
