Loving Kindness Retreat
SMI would like to invite you to join us on a day-long online retreat. The retreat is a gift to our community to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Sarasota Mindfulness Institute. This one day retreat will be held in silence. Please plan ahead regarding where in your house you will be able to meditate for a prolonged period without being disturbed. You will want a place to practice both sitting and walking meditation. There will be a lunch break, so plan to have a lunch already prepared or choose something that can be easily prepared.
The theme of the retreat is Lovingkindness & Compassion. There will be short talks and guided meditations. Sitting meditation will be followed by walking meditation in a rhythm appropriate for the day. Everyone is welcome. Please join us!
The retreat will be held online via Zoom.
