Meditation Evening, March 31

The Regina Insight Meditation Community invites you to a

Meditation Evening

with

Howie Cohn

How to be Loving and Wise

Friday, March 31, 2017
7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Sunset United Church
177 Sunset Drive

This evening will include a meditation, a talk and discussion. Everyone is welcome. No meditation experience is necessary.

To be consistently happy in this life you must be wise. To be wise you must be compassionate with yourself and with others. This evening talk and meditation period will offer the Buddha's practical, clear and inspiring way of awakening wisdom and love in our hearts and minds. Highlighting how the formal practices of Insight Meditation and Lovingkindness can gradually move us from ill will to kindness, from clinging to freedom, from confusion to clarity, and from agitation to calm. Time for questions and discussion will be provided.

Insight Meditation is a simple and direct practice of moment to moment investigation of the mind/body process through clear and focused awareness. Through this practice, we discover ways of being at ease with ourselves just as we are. We can uncover our own natural wisdom and compassion which lie within each of us.

The evening is suitable for new and experienced meditators.

Non-Residential Retreat, April 1 and 2

Love in the Time of Intolerance

with

Howard Cohn

at

Sherwood Forest Golf and Country Club, Regina

Saturday, 1 April (9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)

Sunday, 2 April (9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.)

The Buddha offered common sense reminders and practices to stay open hearted and balanced in tumultuous times. This is such a period for our world, our communities, our families and for ourselves. Otherwise kind, wise people have become intolerant of those with differing opinions. Rather than continuing the chronic habits of closing our hearts, blaming, and "othering," all of which increase resentment and polarization, we can respond with love and wisdom. At this retreat, sitting and walking together we will regain our balance, clarity, ease, patience, heartfulness and wonder. We can be more available to what life brings, ready to advocate for those who need our protection, and able to love in the time of intolerance.

The retreat is suitable for new and experienced meditators.

Howard Cohn has practised meditation since 1972 and has led retreats since 1985. He leads on-going classes in San Francisco, California near his home.

This retreat is freely offered.
