Victoria Vipassana Community 2-day Non Residential Weekend Retreat For New Meditators
with Heather Martin on January 30 & 31, 2010 at Queenswood, 2494 Arbutus Rd., Victoria, BC
This special non-residential weekend retreat is being offered for those new to or unfamiliar with meditation practice. We will meet from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm each day at Queenswood, 2494 Arbutus Rd., Victoria, B.C., on Saturday, January 30 and Sunday, January 31, 2010.
Heather Martin will lead this non-residential weekend meditation retreat. Using a workshop format, she will provide a basic introduction to Mindfulness Meditation (also known as insight or vipassana meditation). The weekend will include periods of instruction, explanation, and practice, with ample opportunity for questions and clarification. Heather will describe both the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of this profound yet simple practice, which benefits us in many immediate ways. You will learn how to reduce the stress and anxiety in which we so often find ourselves, while increasing your well-being and inner calm, and ability to respond appropriately and kindly to each other. This retreat is offered particularly for those new to or unfamiliar with meditation, and for those who have some understanding of the practice, but would like a more thorough foundation.
