A silent day of continuous practice in Wenatchee
During this day-long retreat we will be guided in a sequence of meditation and self-compassion practices including: affectionate breathing meditation, compassionate body scan, walking meditation, self-compassion and loving-kindness meditation.
All those with teacher-led meditation experience or a background in contemplative practice are invited to join. 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.
