Retreat Description:
Core Dharma teachings are methods to work directly with the suffering that arises in the bodies, and minds, of all beings. During this retreat we will offer fruitful, realistic approaches and skills that can bring ease, even liberation. Those currently suffering from chronic illnesses, those currently in caregiving roles, and anyone who is interested in coming to grips with suffering are welcome. All of us have been or will be sick and/or a caregiver, for others our ourselves.

Mindfulness and compassion practices, guided meditations and group discussions will invite us to develop more gentleness, and letting go. Lying-down meditation will be encouraged at any time.

A gentle, optional movement practice will also be offered, with special attention to language that does not exclude any body.

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