A Day of Mindfulness in Bellingham
A silent day of continuous practice in the beautiful Red Cedar Dharma Hall near the heart of Bellingham, led by Mindfulness Northwest director Tim Burnett. Tim 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.
The retreat is designed especially for those who have taken Mindfulness Northwest classes. A day to gather, see old friends, and re-invigorate 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 are welcome to inquire - for some "jumping in" is a great way to start.
