Daylong with Lori Wong: Practicing Compassion

April 23, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

This daylong retreat will offer a combination of meditation practice and experiential exercises which cultivate and explore compassion as both a support and a fruit of practice. The day will offer a mixture of silence, practice in right/mindful speech, and compassionate listening practices. Beginning and experienced meditators are welcomed.

She was one of the founding directors for the Buddhist Insight Network, has volunteered for the Buddhist Pathways Prison Project, and has been offering teachings in the Central Valley since 2009. Lori has been practicing Insight Meditation since 2003 under the guidance of Gil Fronsdal.
