Online Saturday Retreat

with Monk San and his teacher

Bhante Sujatha 8/29
Meditations and Discussion

Bhante Sujatha's Topic:  Rediscover Playfulness! Live in Joy!  Mindfulness and Loving Kindness Practice. Joyful mindfulness is a practice we can do every day bringing us calm, blissful qualities,  bringing us easiness for humor and lightheartedness,  connecting with people and what's important easily.  Joy helps us not take ourselves or our surroundings so seriously, and when we can be playful and easy, we begin to connect with others in a non ego-based way that adds lots of love.  In addition to our formal loving-kindness practice, practicing Joyful Mindfulness has helped many people create a strong meditation practice that makes their lives better.
