The Buddha often encouraged practitioners to meditate outdoors, at the foot of a tree or in wilderness groves. Not only does nature offer peace and seclusion, but the serenity of outdoor spaces often has a soothing effect on the mind—which forms the basis for deep concentration. Join us for the first in our weekly outdoor meditation series (and our first public event since the pandemic), where we will gather safely on the front lawn of Empty Cloud Monastery. After guided meditation and a Dhamma talk, we will leave space for Q&A and discussion.
COVID-19 precautions: To ensure the safety of all participants, we will be practicing social distancing during the event. Please wear a face mask at all times, and bring all the supplies you will need to comfortably practice outside, which may include a blanket, cushion, insect repellent, and bottled water, etc. Unfortunately we cannot provide access to restrooms at this time.
