International meditation expert returns to Central New York to host meditation retreat Aug. 24 to 26

Jose Reissig, a molecular biologist-turned meditation expert, will lead a three-day meditation retreat at Thornfield Conference Center on Cazenovia Lake Aug. 24 to 26. The retreat, titled "Life Without Me," is appropriate for both beginning and experienced meditators. It is sponsored by the Stress Reduction Program of SUNY Upstate Medical University.

Registration for the three-day program, including two-night accommodation is $162 for double occupancy; $228 for single occupancy or $92 for commuters. All meals are included.

The conference begins Friday, Aug. 24 at 4 p.m. and ends Sunday, Aug. 26 at 3 p.m. During the weekend, participants will experience the effectiveness of meditation and demonstrate how meditation can provide peace and stillness no matter how hectic one's life may be.

Reissig, who earned a Ph.D. from Caltech in 1952, has taught meditation since 1990, first in England and subsequently throughout the United States and in other countries. He teaches regularly at the Insight Meditation Center in Barre, Mass.

Reissig taught a three-day meditation workshop last year and it was so well received that organizers decided to invite him back.
