Meditation Daylong

Mindfulness and Crazy Wisdom

A Daylong Retreat with Wes Nisker 

Saturday, October 28, 2017, 10 am to 4 pm
Where: Buena Vista United Methodist Church,  2311 Buena Vista Avenue, Alameda

"Oh wondrous creatures, by what strange miracle do you so often not smile?”

Treat yourself to a relaxing day of mindfulness meditation - sitting and walking – interspersed with the poetry and humor of the ages. 

The workshop will include guided meditations on the evolutionary origin of our body and emotions; reflections on death and dying; and an exploration of the tricky delusions of mind and the mystery of consciousness itself. Drawing on the book that became an underground classic, “Essential Crazy Wisdom,” we will hear from poets and crazy wisdom masters from Lao Tzu and Hafiz to Mark Twain and Lily Tomlin, giving us some perspective on this strange, impossible life we are leading. You may not get enlightened, but you are likely to have a few laughs and acquire a healthy dose of inspiration.

Chairs provided; bring your own cushion if you want to sit on the floor. 
Please bring bag lunch.

This event is offered on a donation basis to provide an opportunity to practice generosity, and to make the teachings available to all.

Registration is requested: drop-in accepted
