Meditation and Interfaith Learning Retreat
A Retreat for Students, Educators, and Social Service and Health Care Professionals

Friday, April 18
Pre-retreat Panel Discussion: "The Meaning of Liberation: Passover, Easter, Moksha"
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM at the Colgate Inn - Payne Street, Hamilton
A panel with Steven Kepnes, John Makransky, Melanie Harris, and Douglas Hicks

Saturday, April 19 (Day-long Meditation Retreat)
9:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Colgate Inn - Payne Street, Hamilton

This day-long retreat is for those new to contemplative practice as well as those experienced in it, who serve others in family or community, or who work in social service, healthcare, education, or for social-environmental justice.

Participants will learn powerful meditations of compassion and awareness adapted from Tibetan Buddhism for people of all faiths and backgrounds. Such meditations from Buddhism can freshly illumine elements of our own spiritual formation (Christian, Jewish, Muslim, or other), generating new insights into the nature of relationship, service and spiritual activism.

Guided meditations will be interspersed with dialogue between Professors Makransky and Harris on fresh possibilities of Buddhist-Christian learning in connection with contemplation, service, and action. Time will be provided for questions and discussion. 
Registration fee of $30 includes continental breakfast and lunch at the Inn (Passover food available).  
To register (Registration deadline: April 1) or for further information call Clara Lantz (315-228-7675) or email clantz@colgate.edu
