Day-Long Retreat With Visiting Teacher Frank Leder (Sat., 1/12/19, 9am-4:30pm)

PIMC is happy to welcome back Frank Leder, Robert's Dharma brother and fellow Ruth Denison student, for a new day-long retreat on Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019. This will be Frank's fourth annual visit to PIMC.
 
The theme of this retreat is, "Patience And Loving Kindness", and is dedicated to Ruth Denison and her timeless invitation:
"We investigate our lives out of compassion. 
Develop patience and loving kindness with difficulties and a love for your practice."
This will be a day to explore possibilities for escaping from the prison of the "Either/Or" mentality.
 
There will be sitting and walking meditation as well as other mindfulness practices during the day, and Frank will guide a meditation/contemplation on the healing power of gratitude.
