Open House w/ Compassion for Animals Meditation
- June 20, 2015
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The month’s Open House will include a wonderful mediation session lead by our friends at the Kadampa Meditation Center of Maryland. Join us at either 1pm or 2pm for our monthly Farm Tours led by our wonderful volunteer tour guide and event coordinator, Rissa Miller (click here to learn more about Rissa and the rest of our Farm Team) then join us on the back lawn for lunch and the meditation session. Feel free to pack a picnic, or order one of our tempting lunch wraps, and have lunch waiting for you (from Nourrie Cuisine)! Gluten-free and nut-free are available, but must be noted at time of order. The meditation is free. All are welcome to join. Please feel free to bring a chair or blanket to sit on.
We do ask that you purchase your Farm Tour tickets in advance (see above) and you will have the opportunity to order lunch at that time. The Burleigh Manor gift shop is always open during our Open Houses, so you will have the opportunity to purchase one of awesome Burleigh Manor T-shirts, a notebook, or even some handmade quince jelly (check out our online store as well). We also have vegan baked good available for purchase during all Open Houses.
About the Meditation
Developing compassion and kindness for animals is more important than ever in this modern day. When approached correctly, compassion is an uplifting and transformative state of mind. The more we open our hearts to animals of all shapes and sizes, the more our empathy will grow. In this way we can develop universal compassion, the most humane and beneficial mind. Everyone is welcome to attend! Please join us for this very special event done in conjunction with Kadampa Meditation Center of Maryland by Buddhist teacher, Gen Kelsang Chogden.
