The After Mindfulness Urban Retreat is coming to the UC Berkeley Campus June 29-30th of this year. This first of its kind gathering welcomes all traditions (of Buddhisim practiced throughout the world? Or all cultures?) to experience how we are interconnected through cross-cultural friendships and dialogue. The retreat will provide the expected 1500 attendees with opportunities for learning, community building, and individual contemplation through talks, music, meditation, yoga, and a dharma festival.
Talks – To share inspiring stories and some answers to what is beyond mindfulness by:
- Ajahn Brahm from Australia, renowned Buddhist teacher.
- Emma Slade, a UK banker turned Buddhist Nun, working with disabled children in Bhutan; and
- Ven De Hong, from Los Angeles who brought mindfulness training inside LA prisons
- Prof. Stephen Murphy Shigematsu who established a Stanford Heartfulness program for creativity, responsibility and authenticity.
Music – A US debut concert by Imee Ooi, musical legion offering soothing and melodic Sounds of Metta at the Zellerbach auditorium.
Yoga, Meditation, and Dharma Talks – Small and large group practice lead by local instructors, sangha leaders and guest speakers.
Dharma Festival – Each day, there will be a mid day festival serving up food, dancing, demonstrations, and engaged dharma where festival partners of local and global non-profit organizations and sanghas come together to show us ways to take your practice from the cushion to the world.
