New! Online Only: We are now offering this program online only, via Livestream so you may join us remotely. Once registered, you will receive instructions and a Livestream link. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we navigate the unfolding of the Coronavirus situation. We are continuing to respond by evolving our practices and policies to keep everyone safe and supported, while still serving as a place of refuge and honoring our community’s commitment to the Dharma and sangha.

We all want to have a calm and peaceful mind. Much of our restlessness and agitation stems from an untrained mind and lack of clear awareness of what’s happening in our mind and body, moment by moment. Innocently trying to alleviate our stress by dwelling in the past and planning the future, we fail to notice what is happening in the present and compound our stress. During this insight meditation day retreat, we will explore ways to train our hearts and minds to find a calm abiding in the present moment.

All levels of experience welcome!

Please note, CE Credits are no longer available for this program. If you paid for CE credits you may receive a refund, an open credit for a future program, or donate the CE credit fee portion. Please email the Registration Department at
