Enjoy a Day of Peace and Practice – Sundays
Join the monastics of Mountain Spring for a relaxing a rejuvenating Day of Mindfulness - a day in which we come back home to ourselves, relax, and cultivate the energy of mindfulness together as a community.
Each Sunday is different - typically we begin at 9:00am with a Meditation Class, followed by Walking Meditation, Dharma Talk or Precept Recitation, a vegetarian Mindful Lunch, and an Afternoon Activity (e.g. Total Relaxation & Touching the Earth, Dharma Discussion, Sitting Meditation, Tea Mediation, Chanting Class). The day concluding at approx. 3:30pm.
The 1st Sunday of the month we will recite the Five Mindfulness Trainings, the 3rd Sunday of the Month we will recite the 14 Mindfulness Trainings.
It is helpful for us to have a general sense of how many people are coming so that we can prepare accordingly.
