Half Day Meditation Retreat
Time & Location
About the Event
Join teacher Courtney Purcell & Monk Ajahn Kamjahn for a half-day meditation retreat on this auspicious occasion of the half moon. We will practice a variety of traditional mindfulness exercises, perhaps be offered a Dharma talk by a Buddhist monk, and get to experience the ancient tradition of alms giving.
8:15-9 welcoming & Dhamma talk
11:15-11:30 alms offering
11:30-12 community discussion & closing remarks
Participants are encouraged to bring some fruit or other ready-to-eat food items to ceremonially offer into the alms bowls of the monks (perhaps as many as five of them) as they come by to receive it. This ancient practice, when carried out mindfully and with a heart of giving, allows one to begin to let go of greed.
All experience levels are welcome.
Delicious Thai Lunch is provided by the Temple!
We have very limited parking at ABMT. Please park either on the property of Cal-Orchid or at the bottom of the hill on Shoreline Drive. This latter option is only a 10-minute walk from the temple. With prior notice, someone can pick you up on Shoreline Drive and drive you to the temple.
