Retreat Description:

Global pandemic, elections, climate change, racial injustice, economic contraction. Where can we find true refuge in this uncertain time? Join us to explore this question through practicing Buddhist Insight meditation in sitting, walking, eating and mindfulness of daily activities. We will explore the deep well-being possible for us regardless of outer changing and unstable circumstances, and explore what knocks us off our balance.

The retreat community will be online, supported by guided meditations, Dharma talks, time for questions, and smaller group meetings with teachers. There will be a suggested schedule for you to follow at home.

To help settle your mind and heart during retreat, you will be encouraged to simplify your life by letting go of technology and communication (except for participating in the retreat), reading, writing and entertainment. We will explore the five ethical precepts that bring peace to our lives. Please join us!
