A Day of Mindfulness Retreat.
We will come together in practice on the beautiful Olmsted Campsite in Sardinia, NY, just 40 minutes South of Buffalo. The day will consist of periods of guided meditation practice, gentle yoga, reflection and journal time, (please bring your own journal) a Mindful Meal, a Dharma talk and closing meditation. We will hold most of the retreat outdoors, weather permitting. Dress in Layers as it may start out a bit chilly and should warm up as the day progresses. In case of rain, we will use the "big house" which has a beautiful covered porch so that we may enjoy the views while staying dry. If it is raining, please bring an umbrella and appropriate shoes to walk up to the big house.
Listed in the National registry of historic places, the Olmsted Camp consists of a large Arts and Crafts style rustic lodge "the big house" settled in a landscape of trees, lawn and garden on a forested Bluff overlooking the Cattaraugus Creek. This time of year should bring the beautiful meditative colors of Fall as a background for our practice. There will be time allotted throughout the day for attendees to explore the beautiful grounds in walking meditation. We will come together for a mindful meal. Due to the dietary needs of participants, you are asked to bring your own lunch to enjoy. Refrigeration is available.
Feel free to bring a portable chair, blanket, yoga mat, and meditation pillow for the guided practice and yoga. I have a few yoga mats that I can provide as well and there are some chairs on the property. Register for the event at www.mindfulnesstrainingsrc.com/course-registration.html. The fee is $49 which will cover the cost of the venue and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Food Bank of Western New York. This retreat is limited to 20 participants and will fill up quickly. Register soon to reserve your spot.
