April Half-Day or Full-Day Retreat with Chris Crotty: The Way Things Are — Insight and Equanimity (4/6/2024)In person
As meditators we gradually increase our ability to meet life with less resistance helping us to see more clearly the “truth”, the way things really are. Equanimity, upekkha (Pali) is both a mind state and a skill to be developed, supporting the mind in remaining stable and balanced when faced with both pleasant and unpleasant experiences. In this half or full-day insight meditation retreat CfMIM guiding teacher Chris Crotty will include equanimity teachings as a supportive practice for the development of insight (vipassana) meditation.
This retreat is open to beginners and experienced meditators from any tradition. Held mostly in silence with instructive talks from the teacher, the retreat will include time for questions and discussion at the end.
There is both a half-day and full-day option: The shorter, half-day option, is a good format for those who are new to retreat, while the full-day format offers students a more immersive retreat experience and is encouraged. Tea, coffee, and light snacks provided. Full-day participants are encouraged to bring their own lunch. Use of the CfMIM kitchen will be available.
