The Joy Of Meditation

A one-day meditation retreat
with Gareth Young and the Red Clay Sangha

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

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. 

There also will be dharma talks and group discussion about practice. 

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 Pierce Yoga Program, 1164 North Highland Ave, Atlanta, GA 30306 (between Virginia and Amsterdam). 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 (neither refrigerator nor microwave are available) or you may eat at a nearby restaurant.
