"A Day of Solitude and Meditation Practice": Michigan Friends Center.

  community member   < less flying heron

Daylong silent meditation retreats are a great opportunity to enjoy the quiet of the country while practicing sitting and walking meditation. This day is appropriate for anyone interested in meditation: beginners will have break-out instruction; experienced meditators can be in silence all day; those in between can practice and have their questions answered. Led by Carol Blotter
Contact Carol at 734-475-0942 or to register.
This day is a fundraiser for Michigan Friends Center.
Carol Blotter's meditation practice draws from dual roots in the Quaker and Buddhist traditions. She has been teaching since 1999 and has led more than 40 retreats across the United States and has taught over 50 classes in meditation to spiritual seekers, schools, universities and medical groups. She is a teacher for The Forest Way which is an organization dedicated to providing retreat opportunities conducive to spiritual growth that is both balanced and integrated.
