[Live-Stream] 1st Saturday Retreat Series at PIMC, with Candle Summers (Sat., Apr. 3, 2021)

Primary tabs

Candle Summers looks forward to sharing the April edition of the 1st Saturday Retreat with you.

This retreat will be hosted on Zoom.

The Theme is: Discovering More About Who You Already Are


   Keeping the 4 Noble Truths alive, understanding the practice of the Brahmaviharas, developing joy in the practice and sharing our common experiences is what this day includes. Come to deepen your practice through sitting, walking, movement and conversation. The joy of being in this difficult and  precious  human birth and to have the teachings of the Buddha available to us, is a great opportunity to see deeply into who we are, our habits, and how to gradually encourage the skillful ones and to let others go. Please join us on April 3, 2021 9:00-3:00 PDT. There will be a 40 min. mindful lunch break, so have your lunch prepared ahead if you can. 
    We are committed to making the exploration of practices and teachings of the Buddha relevant and accessible in today’s world. It is important to welcome all people of every age, ethnicity, cultural heritage and religious background, socio-economic group, ability, sexual orientation and gender identity.In this way we aspire to follow in the footsteps of the Buddha, who offered his teachings of awakening and freedom freely to everyone without exception. While there is a registration link, there is also a scholarship option available for you to give as you can to help continue the time honored teachings of the Buddha. You will get the zoom link from your receipt.


Date/Time: Saturday, Apr. 3, 2021 9 AM - 3 PM (with a one-hour break for lunch)

The first Saturday retreat series is a perfect opportunity to jump start or reinvigorate your daily practice, connect with community members, and gain a comfortable introduction to the power of noble silence. 

Although these retreats are great for beginning students, they are not designed as introductions to meditation. Some basic meditation experience is required to get the most out of this experience.

(These regular monthly retreats at PIMC are always the 1st Saturday of the month.)
