The emphasis during this retreat will be on the continuity of awareness in all activities, which stabilizes and balances the mind. Relaxed acceptance of our moment-to-moment experience will become the platform for investigation and wisdom. Particular attention will be paid to the attitudes in the mind that condition our understanding. This retreat is suitable for both beginner and experienced meditators, and we welcome people from all life experiences, backgrounds, and communities.

The online retreat is offered as broadcast-only and will include: teacher-led meditation instructions and Dharma talks broadcasted live from Spirit Rock’s Upper Meditation Hall. Recordings of each teacher-led session will be posted within 24 hours after a session ends. All video recordings will be available for you to play and replay for 90 days after the retreat ends.

Important note: Online participation in this retreat is audit-only; that is, this online retreat does not offer interactions with the teachers (i.e., no practice meetings, no ability to ask questions during Q&A sessions, etc.), nor does it offer online small groups or affinity groups.

Wise Livelihood for the BIPOC Community

Open to all self-identified BIPOC. As we gather in beloved community, we will meditate, rejoice, relate, and explore the Buddhist teachings of wise livelihood and how we can apply these teachings to the act of living fully with peace, abundance, and freedom. Wise livelihood is one of the factors of the Noble Eightfold Path, and these teachings can profoundly transform our lives and the ways we relate to our work, ourselves, our interpersonal relationships, and to the world at large.

The Wisdom of Storytelling: The Power of Story to Awaken Hearts

While we’re encouraged in Buddhist traditions to let go of the stories we tell ourselves, Buddhism has used storytelling to impart the teachings of the Buddha for thousands of years. In this workshop, we’ll practice honoring our life experiences, bringing mindfulness to listening and speaking, and understanding one another more deeply. In exploring techniques for crafting compelling story and narrative, we'll also learn how the process itself helps us develop perspective and supports a sense of shared openness and vulnerability.

Mindfulness with Breathing: Doorway to Wisdom

The breath is precious. From the first inhale at birth to the last exhale at death, the breath is our constant companion, and serves as many peoples’ introduction to meditation practice. As the Ānāpānasti sutta teaches us, it is also the doorway to the depths of Dhamma. This daylong will use the Ānāpānasti sutta as a roadmap to steadying the heart and mind, pointing us to freedom. We will explore this foundational teaching through guided meditations, talks, and Q&A.
