Event Details

Cost: Sliding Scale $75 – 200. Code SG5D18.

What does home mean to you? Does it mean belonging, safety, reassurance, and impermanence? ”Where are you from?” may refer to your place of birth, ancestral origin, ethnicity, or something entirely different.

As James Baldwin said, “Perhaps home is not a place but simply an irrevocable condition.” Simply put, “At the end of the day, it isn’t where I came from. Maybe home is somewhere I’m going…?” Warsan Shire

The focus of this day retreat is to explore the meaning of home in relation to impermanence. It will also include contemplative practices of walking and sitting meditation.

Everyone is welcome.

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