Daylong Meditation Retreat: Touching the Boundless Mind and Heart


Please join us at a beautiful, rural West Bellevue location for a day of sitting and walking meditation. In this silent retreat, we will stabilize our attention and deepen concentration through the breath and body, then gradually open our awareness to the boundless space of mind and heart. These practices help us touch moments of freedom from our habitual patterns and thoughts and find equanimity in our present moment experience.

Led by meditation teacher Lisa Ernst, this silent retreat is suitable for beginning as well as experienced students. The retreat will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, instructions and dharma talk. Cost is $50. There will be a separate opportunity at the retreat to make a dana (generosity) offering to the teacher. A reduced fee spot is available in the case of financial need. Please inquire for details.

Paypal is available here or write a check, made out to One Dharma Nashville, and send to: One Dharma Nashville, 2301 12th Avenue South, Suite 202, Nashville, TN 37204. Please include your email address. For questions, email
