One-day Meditation Retreat in Upper West Side

Sat 21 September 2019
9:00 AM - 11:59 PM

Meditation is a journey to find our True Self. "Who am I?" "What is my True Self?" Through this questioning about yourself, you can find your True Self and reach the englightenment. Enlightenment means to see the true nature of your mind. If you are truly enlightened, you can abtain true happiness. There is no suffering any more. Everyday life  flows in harmony with the truth. You will live in bliss every day. You can find the true meaning of life and taste true happiness through this meditation. Every 3rd Saturday of each month, we have our monthly one-day retreat here at New York Chogyesa. These retreats are a great way to take some time off from our busy daily lives and look within. If you would like to attend, please register by Friday noon. If you need to cancel your registration, please let us know by Friday noon.The retreat starts at 9:00 a.m. and runs until 3:00 p.m. The schedule includes chanting, sitting, and walking meditation in Central Park. Beginners, or those who have never sat a retreat before, are welcome but should plan to arrive by 8:45 a.m. for a brief orientation. The suggested donation is $30, which includes a simple vegetarian lunch. We encourage you to make a donation for food preparation and temple maintenance. [SUMMER SPECIAL RETREAT PROGRAM for August/September 2017] After morning chanting, we will have an 1-hour energizing yoga session followed by sitting meditation. So please bring your own mat.   We hope to see many of you there! To subscribe our mailing list, please click here.
