March 10, 17, 24 & 31: Mindfulness of Mind Classes

Heart Circle Sangha
451 Hillcrest Road
Ridgewood, NJ

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM each Monday evening

Mindfulness of mind teaches us to pay attention to our states of mind. Through meditation and mindfulness we learn how to separate our True Self from our thoughts, creating an inner witness that permits us to see our thoughts as just objects in our minds. Our thoughts are not us. Thus we begin to reap the benefits of mindfulness of mind.

7-day retreat ends at 10:30 AM Friday, June 6

Spring at The Grail is a beautiful time of year. We have walking and sitting meditation outside as the weather allows, and we breathe in the energizing spring air, while we walk along roads lined with budding trees.

We prepare and share delicious vegetarian meals together, oriyoki style. During afternoons, we experience the Practice of Immediacy with art practice, or meditation. There are many opportunities for personal interviews with Roshi, and in daily talks Roshi and senior students share the teachings of the dharma. We also have Council practice on Sunday and Thursday afternoons during which we share our retreat experience with each other.

Space is limited and early registration is encouraged.
