Event Details

Dates: Saturday to Thursday, December 18-23, 2021 (6 days). A daily schedule will be posted closer to the retreat.
Sliding Scale: $225-$1500, PLUS a donation to the teacher(s). Code 318R21.

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.

This retreat will support centering ourselves during the time of the December holiday season and the New Year, through quieting our minds, grounding in our bodies, and opening our hearts. There will be special emphasis on embracing the darkness, to including our difficulties and challenges, and to welcoming the coming light — including joy, wisdom, and love. The retreat will include sitting and walking meditation instructions, daily loving kindness and Qigong practice, evening dharma talks, practice check in’s, and a Winter Solstice ceremony.

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