Do you feel you “should” meditate because it’s supposed to be good for you? “Should” takes away all the joy!

In this course, we will learn how to meditate and how to improve our meditation practice so that it is something we look forward to every day, just like eating a meal. Meditation will become a joyful part of our life and help us to be more balanced and loving people.

Everyone can benefit from these timeless teachings that are practical and modern! This retreat is in person only.

10:00 – 11AM — Session 1

Family Night: A BCT Benefit Concert featuring Sam Barlett

07:00 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater

Come join Sam Bartlett and family and celebrate the treasure that is the nearly 100-year-old Buskirk-Chumley Theater in one of the first in-person events in well over a year! This concert will be fun for everyone in your household as Sam, with over 30 years experience as a professional musician, performs a variety styles such as Irish, old-time American, and contra dance! The proceeds of these ticket sales will go toward ensuring the Buskirk-Chumley Theater will be bringing the Bloomington community music and fellowship for another 100 years!

Doors open at 6:30pm for this general admission event. The estimated length of the program is 100 minutes.

From Sam Bartlett’s music bio:
I play three traditional styles of music: Irish, old-time American, and contra dance tunes. Each has a distinct form. Because I know too much, it would be easy to fuse all of these into one eclectic mess, something I consciously avoid. I do love to attempt innovation within the styles and compose tunes adhering to time-honored, unwritten rules, and also nudging them a bit. I wrote Evil Diane along these lines, and included a musical virus in the structure that makes it difficult NOT to repeat the tune once it has ended.

My all-original CD of the same title was profiled on NPR’s All Things Considered Christmas Eve 2004, and is still regularly heard on that show.
