Our Dharma practice and recovery program both rest on the foundation of intention and commitment. One day at a time, one breath at a time, we keep coming back to the present moment and our wish to be free. This day retreat will focus on preparing for the new year with a clear vision of our path, whether we are just establishing our recovery, renewing our commitment, or maintaining our program and practice.

Through mindfulness meditations, lecture, interactive exercises, and personal reflection, we seek fresh inspiration for a year of growth and happiness.
