Meditation and Life Integration

“Let us come back to ourselves and establish ourselves in what is present right now. Let us learn to recognize the conditions for happiness that are present within us and around us.”

- Thich Nhat Hahn

Do you feel like life is rushing by and you are not really living?  Do you put off beginning a practice of daily meditation although knowing it would be good for you?  Do you long to share about real life questions and learn with other seekers? 

This series offers twenty minutes of silent meditation together and discussion of readings from the book No Time Like the Present, Finding Love, Freedom, and Joy Right Where You Are by Jack Kornfield, which is available in the Siena Retreat Center bookstore.

Select as many evening sessions as your schedule allows.  Come even if you have not read the chapter or have the book; there is always something new to learn and experience.

Mondays once a month:  January 6, February 3, March 2, April 6, and May 4, 2020
Freewill offering accepted
