Retreat Information
Saturday, February 24, 9am – 4pm
and Sunday, February 25, 10am – 1pm 
Visiting teacher Julie Tato will offer instruction, guided meditation, periods of sitting and walking, and time for questions. It’s preferable to commit to both days, but you are welcome for when you are able to attend. This retreat is suitable for both new and experienced practitioners. If you are new to this practice, and cannot attend both days, please join on Saturday.

Julie Tato, a regular guest speaker at Taos Mountain Sangha, has practiced meditation since 1988, primarily Vipassana, with Sharon Salzberg, Marcia Rose, and many others, including Ven. Tsoknyi Rinpoche. Also an instructor of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, she has a particular interest in Lovingkindness meditation and in practice in daily life. In addition, she teaches meditation with youth and with those recovering from loss. She has lived, worked, and practiced in spiritual community, including many years at the Lama Foundation near Taos, and at the Insight Meditation Society in Massachusetts. Julie also works providing spiritual care at Taos Hospice.

There is no fee for this event.
The practice of Dana (generosity) lies at the heart of Buddhism, reflecting a deep understanding of interconnection and freedom from craving. A teacher offers the teachings; those who are present offer support for the teacher’s efforts, and for the sangha which provides opportunities for yogis to learn and practice. In this way, generosity strengthens relationship and reciprocity.

All donations are gratefully received, at the center, or on our website.

Please bring your lunch on Saturday, along with a water bottle, a jacket or small blanket if you tend to be cold, and a notebook or journal. If you prefer to sit on the floor, the sangha has a limited number of cushions, so please bring a cushion if you have one.

If you have questions, please e-mail .
