Day of Mindfulness with Kate Dresher Whether significant or subtle, whether good, bad, happy or sad, transitions tend to be stressful. Yet times of transition bring us in contact with uncertainty and change and can remind us of deeper truths and possibilities. This day of mindfulness is an opportunity for quieting the heart and mind, increasing our capacity to connect with life as it is, and growing our ability to relate and respond to ourselves and others kindly and wisely. The day will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, contemplation and discussion. It is suitable for those new to and familiar with mindfulness meditation practice.

Facilitator: Kate Dresher has been practicing meditation for 20 years and teaching lovingkindness and insight meditation retreats in the U.S. and British Columbia since 2010. She has studied intensively with both Asian and Western Theravadan Buddhist masters and practiced for a time as a nun in Myanmar. She has also received clinical pastoral training. Her teaching emphasizes practicing right where we are as a doorway to the natural unfolding of wisdom and love.

Details: Saturday, May 19, 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Please bring a sack lunch. Fee: $25
