October 3o IONS meeting



The experience of retreat in the life of the mind

Boise IONS guest presenter on October 30 will be Michael Jones. A practitioner in the Buddhist tradition for many years, he participated in an eight month meditation retreat in 2014-15. He will share experiences, insights and conversation on some ways retreat can help guide the trajectory of one’s spiritual path. Topics will include: intention/motivation, timing, supportive circumstances, teacher, work ethic, expectations, going forward, daily practice.

Michael grew up in Caldwell, Idaho. After majoring in philosophy at college he married, then spent almost 5 years in Peace Corps and Quaker Service in Southeast Asia, including wartime Vietnam. Back in Idaho his career included family life, peace justice and environmental activism, calligraphy, graphic design and publishing, and vegetable farming.

Meeting takes place 2 to 4 PM at the Boise Universalist Union Fellowship, 6200 N Garrett Street, Boise. Meetings are free and your donations help pay Boise IONS expenses.
