Impermanence & the Present Moment

Day Long Retreat January 6, 2024 9am – 4pm
Milford Chapel / Meditation Hall Park Road Baptist Church
3900 Park Road 28209

When asked to describe the Buddha Dharma in a few words, Zen master Suzuki Roshi simply said “everything changes”.

Anicca means “unstable,” “impermanent” and “changing.” Anicca – a word from the Pali language, the language that most closely approximates the language spoken by the Buddha – points to the idea that all physical and mental existence is in a state of flux and therefore cannot be permanent.

As this year changes, please join us for a day of noble silence, using the teachings of the Buddha and our own experience to explore one of the essential ideas of Buddhism. This retreat will offer teachings from the Dharma, periods of sitting and walking meditation, and optional gentle movement. A lunch break and opportunities for small groups will be included. Retreat materials provided upon registration. For more information contact IMCC Dharma Leader Thia Powers,
