Zen & Mindfulness Retreat in Mumbai
Time & Location
About The Event
It is impossible to define Zen. To try and explain it is to lose it, for it freezes Zen in time and space. Zen is not a theory, an idea, or a piece of knowledge. It is not a belief, a dogma, or a religion. Zen is a practice, that needs to be experienced, free of all concepts.
Mindfulness is not about having one's 'mind-full' of something; it’s actually the opposite – the setting aside of your mental and emotional baggage, resulting in a clarity and a fluidity that lets thoughts, feelings and perceptions flow smoothly through your awareness without sticking.
This Retreat will help us cultivate continuous, clear awareness of the present moment. Always returning, whether from an enjoyable fantasy, an emotional outburst or a melancholy remembrance; always returning to this moment.
We invite you to be present for a one-day Retreat with Venerable in the heart of Mumbai. The retreat will also include Yoga session, which is led by Rie Itabashi, who has been teaching Yoga in Ven. Sudhammacara's meditation retreats.
Suggested Donation: Rs. 500 (Payable at the Venue)
