A Talk by Robert Kest, PhD: What Are You Really Practicing?

What are you really practicing ? Exploring the dynamics and dimensions of mindfulness . . . 

Many different practices and perspectives fall under the heading of mindfulness, and yet these practices are strikingly different; cultivating a wide variety of world views and experiences and relationships to life and nature and being. As important as practice itself, the question “what are you really practicing?” is, perhaps, even more critical. This evening’s talk will be an exploration of the many dynamics and dimensions of mindfulness and its varied practices and outcomes. Saturday Evening September 13th Seven until eight-thirty Portland Friends Meeting House 1837 Forest Avenue in Portland 

This talk is offered free of charge 

FMI, please call Maggie Miller at[masked] or email at [masked]

 Robert M. Kest, Ph.D., has been a student of meditation for over forty-five years. He holds a doctorate in Psychology, his study focusing on the bio-psychological foundations of character and its interrelationship with movement and meditative states. He was a student of Charlotte Selver’s for thirty years and was a participant in her yearlong study group at Green Gulch Zen Center and Tassajara Monastery during[masked] and was approved by her to present classes in the work.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night at this talk. The parking lot at Portland Friends Meeting, where the talk is being held, is small. There is a much larger lot directly across the street. Please feel to park there. There is a grey structure on one of the lot. It is best is you park as far away from this building as you can. Thanks.

    There are so many books on mindfulness and meditation, it is easy to become overwhelmed. Sounds very interesting.
