When Life Becomes a Retreat – Virtual Day of Meditation with Shinzen Young

When Life Becomes a Retreat

Join the Consciousness Explorers Club for a virtual day of practice and insight with Shinzen Young, the CEC’s prime mentor and much-loved uber-nerd. In this experiential workshop, we’ll explore meditation strategies to make the most out of the unexpected challenges life presents. You’ll learn how mindful awareness techniques develop basic attentional skills — concentration power, sensory clarity, and deep equanimity — and how these skills directly or indirectly, serve to optimize all dimensions of the human experience. Structured as a one-day retreat, the day will be focused around practice and Q and A.

Shinzen‘s teachings reveal a gift for insight through unexpected analogies, illustrations, and humour, and he merges scientific clarity with a rare grasp of source-language teachings, East and West. Don’t miss this opportunity to sit and dialogue with a respected authority. 

This is a fundraiser for both the CEC and Shinzen’s Community for Mindful Living – funds will go toward helping both organizations expand programming and extend the benefits of practice to more people.The CEC is a registered not-for-profit with the mission of making meditation and personal growth practices fun and accessible to all.
