A silent day of continuous practice at the Good Shepherd Center in Seattle.
A silent day of continuous practice at the Good Shepherd Center led by Mindfulness Northwest teacher Richard Johnson. Richard will lead us in a sequence of meditation and mindfulness practices including: sitting meditation, the body scan, walking meditation (indoors and out!), gentle mindful yoga, and contemplative practices like the loving-kindness meditation.
We will practice together inside the historic Good Shepherd Center with options for walking meditation and lunch break time outside on the beautiful grounds.
The retreat is designed especially for those who have taken Mindfulness Northwest classes. A day to gather, see old friends, and reinvigorate our practice together. Others with teacher-led meditation experience or a background in contemplative practice are invited to join as well. If you are totally new to meditation this day may be a challenge but you're welcome to inquire; and, for some, "jumping in" is a great way to start.
