Painting at the Land of Retreat: Summer Series 2016


This summer KCC is hosting a very special painting series at Ser Chö Ösel Ling, KCC's retreat property near Goldendale, Washington. Participants will spend the day painting landscapes on 240 acres of private property that features a mixture of high desert prairie, arid brushland, and pine and oak savannahs. Three of Portland's most highly-reputed plein air artists and instructors will guide participants in capturing the beauty of this sacred land on canvas for the first time. Read more about Ser Chö Ösel Ling (SCOL) here.

This series includes four different classes led by three different artists. Paint mediums and skill levels vary with each class.

Discovering Awareness—Relaxing in the Solace of the Three Solitudes

Developing basic awareness is an indispensable foundation for all meditation practice. Establishing a conducive container for such training allows for the discovery of our most fundamental quality to more readily unfold. Observing the three solitudes of body, speech, and mind, we will hone our practice of śhamatha (calm-abiding).

The vast majority of the sessions will be spent in contemplation and meditation. There will be sufficient instruction to do the practices, limited general teaching, and a daily session to address questions. Each participant will have the option to have several brief, practice-oriented personal interviews with the teacher. Although sitting sessions will fill the day, there will be a break for stretching or walking meditation every half hour.
