10th Annual Mindfulness Retreat

Life is Calling! Mindfulness for Our Times

Leaders | Jeanne Ann Whittington, Margaret Fletcher and Michael Leuchtenberger

March 22 (5:45 to 8:30 PM) March 23 (8:30 AM to 8:30 PM) March 24 (8:30 to 11:15 AM)

Each year in the early spring, members and friends of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Concord have lovingly converted the church sanctuary and grounds into a weekend meditation center. This year we celebrate our 10th year of coming together to practice in silence, in joy and in very good company! 

The calling to cultivate awareness, resonance, compassion and awakened activism feels ever more pressing, knowing the challenges we face in these times. Practical guidance throughout the weekend will encourage each of us in developing steadiness of mind and heart, a curious attitude and goodwill in every direction. What could happen, if we brought such qualities to bear to benefit all people (ourselves included!), all species, and this precious Earth?

Come join with friends and fellow congregants for this year’s weekend retreat, in person at the Church and online via Zoom. All are invited: this retreat is suitable for those who are new to meditation as well as those with more experience. A variety of practice types (sitting, movement, reflection, mindfulness of everyday activities, etc.) make this silent retreat doable for all. Masking will not be required for in-person participants, though anyone preferring to mask is welcomed and encouraged to do so. All possible attention will be given to creating a safe environment, using HEPA filters, ventilation, and reasonable distancing/spacing precautions.
