Nobody tells us this when we’re growing up, but being human is a big deal. It feels great, it hurts, it’s intense. We know it won’t go on forever. Given this, what kind of happiness is possible? The Buddha suggested that we have underestimated the capacity of our heart. Retreat helps us to remember. In mindfulness meditation, we practice resting, looking deeply, knowing moment-by-moment what it’s like to be human. The more deeply we look, the more reason we have to love.

Together, we’ll sit in the refuge provided by a 2,600-year legacy of wisdom and kindness. In the silence, we come to know the preciousness of our life and the poignancy of the human condition. From this openness, so much goodness unfolds. In this silent retreat, we’ll offer systematic instructions in mindfulness and lovingkindness practice. Throughout the retreat there are meetings with teachers to support you in your practice.

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