Event Details

Sliding Scale: $75 – 200. Code GF4D18.

These days, it’s often hard to know what to do, or how to respond to all the sources of suffering: from the challenges in our own lives, to those of our beloveds, or to the ever-widening rings of destruction and despair.

This day retreat will explore how to cultivate our inner place of refuge, our stillpoint, that can sustain and support us in meeting the world with an open, tender, and fierce heart. We’ll also look at how to embody the wisdom of the teachings through our actions and further allow our interactions with others to be a source of practice and liberation.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
