NOTE: Donald and Oren Sofer will be offering two retreats this summer on "Mindful Communication," one a non-residential retreat in Berkeley July 2-8, and one a residential retreat in New Mexico August 25-30.
The non-residential retreat (9 to 5 each day) provides a wonderful opportunity for combining silent and interactive practices and then bringing the practices home!
