Insight Meditation Community of Lewes will welcome meditation teacher Luisa Montero for a virtual retreat from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Saturday, April 3, via Zoom. The event will include a dharma talk on the topic of Meditation: Learning How to Rest.
Montero said, “In this fragile, uncertain, changing world, our minds take on this huge job of holding, controlling, constructing and/or narrating our experience. This is both exhausting and in the long run, impossible. What if we took a break? Meditation, in its essence, is resting. Through meditation practice, we can begin to see how we get caught in this inexhaustible ‘job’ and how we might let it go. Through guided meditations, instructions and discussion, we’ll spend this Saturday morning reminding ourselves of the value of pausing, of relaxing and resting.”
All are welcome to attend this morning of meditation and discussion.
Montero has been practicing Vipassana meditation since 1987 and teaching meditation since 1993. She completed the three-year Community Dharma Leadership program sponsored by the Spirit Rock Meditation Center.
The suggested donation for the retreat is $20. For those with limited income, 50 percent or any amount of the suggested donation offered is welcome. If budget does not allow for a donation, simply log in; no explanation is needed.
