Meditation on the Lawn

July 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

At 6 pm, gather safely in the lawn of Empty Cloud Monastery and practice meditation with Buddhist monks.

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.

COVID-19 precautions: To ensure the safety of all participants, we will be practicing social distancing during the event. Please wear a face mask at all times, and 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.
