Sesshin Day Retreat – August 2018
Sunday August 12, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Get into the Flow of Positive Consciousness
In the Zen tradition a sesshin is an intensive period of meditation to transform the heart-mind. Literally sesshin means touching the heart-mind and is also referred to as gathering the mind. This is achieved through a program of continuous mindful practice, whether sitting, standing. walking or eating.
Join Apada and Padmasiddhi for a 6 hour sesshin at the Melbourne Buddhist Centre, involving 6 meditation sessions of between 40 and 30 minutes with walking meditation in between each session to allow the body to stretch. The sesshin is conducted in silence, allowing an accumulative effect of each meditation to develop an intensity of practice and flow.
A light lunch will be provided on the day.
This day retreat is best suited to those who regularly practice meditation within our Sangha.
However, for others wishing to attend, and who have an established meditation practice, we ask that you ring the MBC (9380 4303) and speak to either Apada or Padmasiddhi to discuss whether this is the right retreat for you.
Please note. This retreat is Not suitable for beginners as there is no meditation instruction given on the day – just a few words of encouragement and some inspiration poems, from time to time.
