Practicing Meditation with the Heart Sutra


Join us for this weekend meditation retreat March 1-3, 2019, at the Brunswick Shambhala Meditation Center.


In the Prajnaparamita-Hridaya, or Heart Sutra, the Buddha points out the open and fluid nature of
experience. In this weekend retreat we will use the contemplation of the sutra to illuminate our
sitting meditation practice. We can learn from the sutra a path of accommodation and tranquility
in everyday life.


Beginners and experienced meditation practitioners are welcome to attend any part of this practice weekend.


The weekend will begin with a Friday night talk (registration at 7pm) on how the teachings from the Heart Sutra can refresh our meditation practice.


Saturday and Sunday will begin at 8:30am with optional Lujong (Warrior Exercises) and silent light breakfast and registration at 9am, sitting with introductory meditation instruction 9:30am. Lunch on your own or brown bag, 12:15-1:45pm. 1:45pm sitting and optional individual meditation instruction. 3:30pm tea and 4pm talks on the path and fruition of practice with the Heart Sutra. Sunday, we will finish at 1:00pm.
