Please Note: This retreat is 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.

In the second foundation of mindfulness, the Buddha taught the practice of the Vedanās or feeling tones as a way to liberation. During this day of practice, we will explore how we can apply these teachings to chronic physical pain.

Pain gets our attention like nothing else, but it often obliterates any sensations of pleasant or neutral (neither pleasant nor unpleasant) in its wake. But it is exactly the conscious practice with all three that opens the door to more ease, calm, and balance.

This is a daylong retreat with guided stationary and movement meditation, interactive practice, and periods of individual and small group reflections.

All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email
