Description:
This day retreat we will explore the nature of ego and the enormous stress that comes with trying to be “someone.” With Insight Meditation, we can make peace with our various self-views. Through sitting and walking meditation, supported by instructions and dharma talks, we will settle our minds and bodies. We will use the healing tools of mindfulness and loving-kindness to meet the activity of self with balance and openness, perhaps even “loving the house that ego built.”


Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals as well as the general public. This program will assist health care professionals support patients and clients with perspectives on identity and the ego, and offer practices for acceptance, healing, and growth.
