Evening Meditation on the Lawn
August 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Buddha often encouraged practitioners to meditate outdoors, at the foot of a tree or in wilderness groves. Not only does nature offer peace and seclusion, but the serenity of outdoor spaces often has a soothing effect on the mind—which forms the basis for deep concentration. Join us for weekly outdoor meditation, where we will gather safely on the front lawn of Empty Cloud Monastery. After guided meditation and a Dhamma talk, we will leave space for Q&A and discussion.
Where to find us: Usually meditation will happen in the front lawn. In case of inclement weather, please come to the back porch.
Bring all the supplies you will need to comfortably practice outside, which may include a blanket, cushion, insect repellent, and bottled water, etc. Unfortunately we cannot provide access to restrooms at this time.
