A Day of Meditation

Team IWA concluded its mission to Cambodia with a daylong meditation retreat. 21 volunteers spent the day together in a lovely, spacious apartment in Phnom Penh. The morning was spent in silence with sitting and walking meditation led by Jeff Hardin and yoga led by Terry Lesser. After a delicious catered vegetarian lunch, Beth Goldring and Stav Zotalis, two women involved in aid work in Cambodia presented their perspectives on working meditatively with the hardships and suffering rampant in Cambodia. The daylong was concluded with members discussing how they made sense of all they had experienced over the 2 weeks. It was a beautiful and meaningful way to spend our last day in Cambodia.
