October Retreat with John Orr

October Retreat with John Orr

Still Mountain hosted an online retreat, October 7 – 9, 2022, with Buddhist teacher John Orr. During this weekend retreat through mindfulness and heart centered meditations we explored and practiced the Buddha’s path to awakening and compassion. The retreat was open to people of all levels of experience. Some call the Buddha’s path the path of love, which requires courage, the willingness to live in the moment, and working with pain and difficult emotions as they arise.

John Orr received Theravada Buddhist ordination and training in the 1970’s while living as a monk in Thailand and India.  His Asian teachers are Ajahn Chah, Ajahn Buddhadasa and S.N. Goenka. John has been teaching meditation and leading Dharma retreats at various centers around the world since 1980. After retiring from the faculty of Duke University, he recently relocated to his new home outside of Asheville, North Carolina.
