Jaya Rudgard began meditating in the 1980s and practiced for eight years as a nun in the Theravada tradition with Ven. Ajahn Sumedho. She is a graduate of the IMS/Spirit Rock Teacher Training and teaches insight meditation and mindfulness in the UK and internationally.
(Note this day was originally going to be led by Catherine McGee, but she was unable to do it in the end. Our thanks go to Jaya Rudgard for stepping in at short notice.)
Please bring your own cushion or stool and mat, if desired, (there are plenty of chairs), and a packed lunch (tea and coffee will be provided). If coming by car, Park and Ride is a way to avoid difficult and expensive parking in Cambridge.
Day retreats offer a chance to practise meditation and mindfulness in a supportive environment. They include alternate periods of sitting and walking meditation, and the teacher provides guidance through meditation instruction, a Dharma (teaching) talk, and a question and answer session. Beginners are offered additional instruction and assistance. For experienced meditators the day is an opportunity to refresh and deepen practice. The retreats are normally held in silence.
