Insight Meditation Community of Lewes will welcome meditation teacher Carl Skooglund for an evening Dharma talk and a half-day meditation retreat with the theme of Calm, Watch and Guide the Mind: The Roots of Practice. Skooglund said the talk is meant to distill the array of teachings and practices encountered these days into something that helps deepen practice. All are welcome to attend this weekend of meditation and discussion.
