Loving Each Moment: The Heartfelt Revelation of Dharma

This retreat will explore the simplicity of being in each moment. Together we will discover the heart's capacity to awaken to loving ourselves, each other, and the world. Together in community we will be nourished by the 2600 year old tradition of abiding in silence, stillness, kindness, and clarity. Our time together will include mindfulness meditation in sitting, movement, and all daily activities. The teachings will weave together ancient wisdom along with the love of truth and being.

The Awakened Heart: Mindfulness and Compassion Practices for Living a Wise and Free Life 

The Awakened Heart practices known as the brahmavihāras are treasures that offer us timeless ways to cultivate and embody lovingkindness, compassion, joy, and peace. Cultivating the heart begins with self-love and self-compassion, and opens toward boundless kindness and care, holding beings throughout the many worlds in our own awakened heart. Join us in the delight of exploring, practicing together, and renewing these disciplines through meditation, stories, teachings, dialogue, and time with our beloved elder teacher.

Women's Dharma Day: Integrating Consciousness into Relationships, Communication, and Action

Open to all self-identified Women. The Buddha was clear that living wisely and not causing harm are the bedrocks of liberating the heart and mind from suffering. In parallel with cultivating a formal meditation practice, we must spend equal time cultivating ahimsa (non-harming) in our speech and actions. Not only does this support our own awakening process, but it ensures that our practice benefits all beings. This daylong retreat is for self-identified women who are interested in integrating more consciousness into relationships, communication, and action.
