Insight Meditation Community of Lewes will welcome meditation teachers Luisa Montero-Diaz and Fran Lewandoski for A Day of Embodied Silence from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, May 6, in person at St. Peter’s parish hall in Lewes and online via Zoom. Participants are asked to bring a bag lunch/snacks.

Registration is required. Attendees are asked to RSVP to and indicate virtual or in-person attendance.

The teachers look forward to spending the day with participants becoming safely embodied. They will provide meditation instructions and reflections that focus specifically on embodied mindfulness practice. They will support the creation of a space of shared silence so participants’ practice can unfold.

Montero-Diaz currently teaches a weekly meditation class in Takoma Park, Md., and leads retreats in the Washington, D.C. area.
