ONLINE: This at-home retreat is now offered online only. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19. This retreat will be modified for an at-home schedule and experience. Please Note: This retreat will be a LIVESTREAM.

The emphasis during this retreat will be on the continuity of awareness in all activities, which stabilizes and balances the mind. Relaxed acceptance of our moment-to-moment experience becomes the platform for investigation and wisdom. Particular attention will be paid to the attitudes in the mind that condition our understanding. This retreat is suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators. We welcome people from all life experiences, backgrounds and diverse communities.
