Wake Up! Meditation on the Cushion and in Daily Life
A retreat in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh
with Dharmacharya Leslie Rawls

Southern Dharma Retreat Center, Spring Creek, North Carolina

The Buddha became enlightened during sitting meditation and then continued awakening with every step and every breath the rest of his life. We’ll practice sitting and walking meditation, investigating techniques to encourage our own awakening both on the cushion and as we move through the wondrous beauty of the Southern Dharma in early fall. Following the Buddha’s example, we’ll also practice taking full awareness into daily activities — waking to the precious nature of life. Our practice will be grounded in the Buddha’s teachings on mindfulness, meditation, and living in the present. In addition to formal meditation, the retreat will include working meditation, outdoor walking meditation, personal practice and reflection time, Dharma talks by the teacher, small group sharing, and private practice interviews with the teacher. A welcome, focused respite in a beautiful setting to nourish our heart’s intention to live an awakened life.

Registration opens in January 2016. www.southerndharma.org

Suitable for new and experienced practitioners.
