Forest Meditation, Saturday, December 2nd at 11:30am

Practice Leader: Matt Hane

Studies show that being in nature & meditation both have positive effects on our brains & well-being. At Catamount Institute, we see this first hand every day with our campers and students. Join us for a relaxing, mindful walk through a meandering trail at Sondermann Park. Then, sit Creekside for a simple meditation while listening to the flowing water and singing birds. Mindful walking and meditation will be led by Matt Hane from Rocky Mountain Insight. All experience levels welcome. Children 11 and older are welcome. A donation of $10.00 or more supports programs at the Catamount Institute to get underserved youth into nature. The mediation starts promptly at 11:30am and lasts until 12:30pm. RSVP to info@catamountinstitute.org or 719-471-0910 x106.

The Book Of Ruth

We have lost our Dear Ruth, but her wise and witty words live on. Now available here for download, a pdf version of “The Book Of Ruth: Sayings of Ruth Denison” (19MB, may take a minute to open):

The Book Of Ruth: Sayings of Ruth Denison

bookofruthcover

Ruth Denison is one of RMI Founder Lucinda Green’s root teachers. For those who are unfamiliar with Ruth’s teaching, it is probably best understood as a combination of U Ba Khin’s vipassana meditation technique, her teacher Charlotte Selver’s sensory awareness techniques, Theraveda Buddhist doctrine, and Ruth’s own studies, discoveries and innovations. In addition, through the decades, Ruth has constantly refined her teaching, routinely emphasizing one aspect or another of the technique to suit what she understands to be a student’s needs in that moment, in that place.
