Event Details

Sliding Scale: $75 – 200. Code VF2D18.

Just for this day, can we give ourselves a permission slip to be just as we are?

In this day retreat, we will be exploring Insight practices and how they lead to wisdom and compassion, which in turn, when applied to our daily lives, lead to liberation.

Join us as we sit and practice together, and learn from our own direct experience. As we rest in this kind awareness, we see that anything is possible when love is present.

There will be periods of silent, guided, and walking meditation, as well as Q&A.

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