A Two-week Online/Onsite Hybrid Retreat with Patrick Kearney

with Patrick Kearney

February 5 - 19, 2021

This hybrid online/onsite retreat gives the option of connecting from home by Zoom, or staying onsite at BMIMC. Both online and onsite attendees will follow the same schedule. Onsite attendees will be expected to remain in silence during the entire retreat while on the Centre grounds.
The daily schedule will include: an early morning posture and flexibility workshop to help develop mindfulness immersed in body (kayagata sati); a practice workshop which will progressively introduce different aspects of mindfulness meditation (satipatthana); group sittings; individual interviews; and an evening dharma talk. Each day will begin at 7:00 a.m. for the posture and flexibility session and end at 8:30 p.m. after the evening dharma talk.
