Listening to Truly Hear the Heart with Susan Orr
Listening to Truly Hear the Heart: A Path to Wisdom and Compassion We will turn our meditation and mindfulness practice toward this experience of receiving what the ears, the body and the heart hear. In moments of enlightenment, the Buddha said "in the hearing, just the heard." How can that show up as we pay attention to our inner life and in our conversations with others? These meetings will be a shared exploration of our experiences in this territory. As this experience will build from one month to the next, please plan on attending from the beginning date. For more information, you can contact Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 916-747-1573. Details to Consider Please try to arrive by 6:41 pm to register and settle in. Wear comfortable clothing,bring a covered mug or water bottle and your personal cushion if you have one. Chairs and cushions will be available at the retreat, as well as tea and hot water.
