one day Retreat with Nancy McBride - ClearLight Meditation Institute

Immerse yourself in a day of meditation inspired by some of the central teachings from the Buddha. Explore in a personal, experiential way the timeless and transformative wisdom of his instructions.

The day will include brief teachings, guided meditations, walking meditation as well as sharing and discussion with others in the group. Experience how extended practice brings insights and learning taking you well beyond your daily perspective. The approach to the day will be gentle, relaxed, and enjoyable.

This program is open to those with a mature mindfulness meditation practice who are interested in practicing in a group retreat format. It is designed as a companion retreat for the 10 week course, “Echoes of the Buddha” and is available as part of a discount package when you sign up for that course.

You guys are serious and laid back at the same time which I really like. I feel that you have acquired real wisdom and experience in the areas that you teach, but I love how you really do “meet people where they are”.

Walking the path under the guidance of Scott and Nancy has transformed my life. I now live it from a place of love, joy, compassion, and peace. When inevitable turmoil happens, it’s transient and I can move through it. I’m no longer whip-sawed around. Each day feels enveloped in gratitude and I feel held by a loving presence.

The talks on loving kindness were a beautiful blend of wisdom, love, science addressing the challenge of our common reality.
