Come home to yourself with the simple and direct practice of being present for your experience. Insight Meditation allows the restless heart to settle through the gentle practice of repeatedly connecting with and returning to the here and now. It is here in the present moment where we discover the peace and well-being we yearn for. This retreat is suitable for beginners as well as experienced practitioners and is silent except for practice instructions, teacher-led Q&A, and practice discussions.

Teacher

After practicing Insight Meditation many years, my teacher Gil Fronsdal asked me to teach Dharma in Spanish for the Hispanic community. I have been teaching regularly since 2011. I am most interested in exploring the intersection between the Pali canon, the direct experience, and our capacity for creativity.

The Nature Inside: A Women's Daylong on the Four Elements

Open to all self-identified Women. In the Buddha’s instruction on cultivating mindfulness using the body, one method he taught was the use of the four elements: Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. Throughout this meditation daylong for self-identified women, we will use the four elements practice to investigate our own relationship to our body and to remind us of our connection to the natural world. Our schedule will flow between sitting and movement meditation, guidance, and silence. Join us for a connective, welcoming, and restorative retreat.
