A Benefit for Spirit Rock.

In this day retreat, we will explore and experience the ways in which our inner subjective lives, our interpersonal relationships, and our objective empirical knowledge can be woven together to illuminate the importance for meaning, connection, and equanimity in our lives.

The day will be based on his upcoming book, and will include periods of guided and walking meditation, discussion, journaling, and Q&A.

Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals as well as the general public.
