All ages welcome!

Wisdom and Compassion! These two powerful qualities are often called the essential wings of our practice. Both must be cultivated and refined for our practice to have momentum and efficacy. Otherwise, we get stuck: wisdom without compassion can be dry and disconnected, while compassion without wisdom can lead to burn out and frustration.

Wisdom awakens as we bring mindful awareness to our moment-to-moment experience. Compassion is ignited when it meets suffering, whether it is physical, emotional or mental. Together, wisdom and compassion inform wise action in our lives. This day of reflection reveals the timely relevance of wisdom and compassion to our complex lives.

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