MARCH 2021

March 6
Renewing our Practice: Third Annual Triangle Insight Daylong Retreat
Led by Sarah Bryce
Online, 9am-1pm, and then 4pm-5pm
To register:  [email protected]
A Zoom address will be sent to everyone who registers.

Welcome Spring together by gathering to refresh and renew our practice, to “fluff” it, as Jeanne van Gemert might say, as we Spring-clean our Dharma houses.

We will spend the morning together online, re-establishing our mindfulness and concentration, with guided sitting and walking meditation periods, and with some opportunities for Q&A and hearing the Dharma. We will then transition to an afternoon of self-practice, reconvening in late afternoon for a closing tea-time sharing of the fruits of our practice and a final Metta meditation.

This retreat is for all levels of practitioners, and is offered on a Dana basis.

Sarah Bryce is a guiding teacher of Mindful Families of Durham and a guest teacher at Triangle Insight. To register, or if you have questions, please email: [email protected].

March 27 & 28
Southern Dharma Benefit Retreat
The Thinning of Self: What It Means to Awaken
with Rodney Smith

The thinning of ourselves begins when we decide to become more conscious by facing what is true and moving toward the difficult. As we become less defended there is more access to interconnection and true caring. We become less governed by self-concerns and more aligned with the heart. The two phases of this process include finding our true ground of sanity and releasing ourselves into the mystery of being. Each will be fully explored with dharma talks, guided meditations, dyads, Q & A, Chi Gong, and formal practice.

Please note that this at home retreat will begin at 9am Eastern Time on March 27th and end at 8pm Eastern Time on March 28th. All experience levels are welcome.

This program is being offered as a benefit to Southern Dharma Retreat Center and Rodney asks that all donations, including all teacher dana, be directed toward the Center. Thank you for your generosity.
