Dropping In to the Present Moment

Held in the Buddhist Insight Meditation Tradition
with Genevieve Tregor




Saturday, June 15th 2024
9am - 12:30pm (bring a lunch if you want to eat with community after the retreat)

Scottsdale Congregational UCC
 4425 N Granite Reef Rd, Scottsdale
We will be in the Main Sanctuary

This is a fully Dana based event.
Donations will be split between the Teacher and the Church. 

Join the Scottsdale Sangha (community) for a half-day of practice, supported by an experienced teacher and in community with others. This retreat is open to all, however, there will be minimal instruction and may not be appropriate for those completely new to practice and looking for an introduction to mindfulness. (Participation in the Monday night meeting on at least 3 occasions should be sufficient experience for anyone unsure!)


The day will include alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation, instructions and guidance in Vipassana (Insight/Mindfulness) and Metta (Loving Kindness) practices.
