This weekend March 28-30th join us for an accessible approach to meditation with Neil McKinlay. No previous experience necessary. A note from Neil:
"Last time our focus was 'Precious Human Birth', the first element of a foundational teaching known as 'The Four Reminders'. The reminders are intended to draw our attention to some basic facts about our lives - that we have a unique opportunity to develop ourselves, for instance. In doing so, they give us a chance to consider how we are passing our days and to consciously make some very important choices. Over the course of the coming weekend, I would like us to consider each of these reminders in turn. As always, such consideration will be immersed in a schedule that allows ample time for practice and discussion. More specifically, our timetable will be: Fri Mar 28 - 7:30-9:00 pm Sat Mar 29 - 1:00-5:00 pm Sun Mar 30 - 8:30-10:30 am & 1:00-3:00 pm It is possible to attend some or all of these sessions."

Embracing Our Lives: Meditation & the 4 Reminders with Neil McKinlay
This all levels workshop will use the ‘Four Reminders’ as a provocation toward a more complete embrace of our lives. Alternating meditation practice and spirited discussion, we will explore the four ways that life constantly encourages us into engagement. By weekend’s conclusion, we will find ourselves more embodied, more invigorated, more alive.
Neil McKinlay is a teacher, coach, and intuitive guide. A close student of Reggie Ray, Neil draws from his training in the tradition of Chogyam Trungpa to emphasize the accessibility and relevance of meditation in the modern world. Seeing the spiritual journey as an inherent part of human life, his teaching style is immediate and personal, always affirming the dignity and wholeness of our lives as they are.
