In the Satipatthana Sutta, otherwise known as the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, we are asked to contemplate experience of mind and body, both internally and externally. This practice points to both our awareness of what's going on for our own hearts and minds, as well as what is happening around us in the world.

This weekend retreat will give us the opportunity to get real and connected to our own internal experiences, as well as staying connected to the world and people around us. There will be both silent reflective time as well as relational practices.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this program for $135 ($45/day).
