Description:
Our practice does not end at the edge of our cushion. Our workplace can serve as our temple for daily life practice, where the proverbial rubber meets the road. Our work can serve as our sacred offering to the world, as well as the training ground where personal and interpersonal challenges are transformed into opportunities to grow, learn, and open our hearts. Our day retreat objectives are to foster intentionality in work as practice, and to impart practical tools and practices for developing the art of skillful, compassionate work. The day includes guided meditations, teachings, group interactive exercises, and Q&A.

This program will be video and audio recorded for an online audience. By attending, you consent to being videotaped and included in the program recording.


Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals as well as the general public. Health care professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients. Continuing Education (CE) credit available. See below for attendance requirements and more information.
