Love and Relationship: The Great Spiritual Practice 

We are always in relationship—with ourselves, with partners when we have them, with family and those near and dear (or not so dear), and with the community and the world around us. Our relationships are demanding, urgent, important, and intimately human. Join us for a day of heartfelt teachings and practices, stories, and honest dialogue. At this time in our lives and in the troubled world, we need the practices of wisdom and love, skill and communion. We can learn the skills of love with those nearby, and learn to expand this practice to the world beyond. During this special day together, Trudy and Jack will share what has helped them over a lifetime of practice.

July Insight Meditation Retreat

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.

Transforming the Judgmental Mind

6 CE Credits. Judgments of a reactive and compulsive nature can have a strong impact on our lives. They can distort our perceptions, make relationships difficult, and undermine our work. Together we will examine what judgments are and how to work with them, using mindfulness, “heart” practices, and inquiry. These explorations will help us to preserve the discernment often found in judgments, while working through their destructive aspects. Attendees will have the option of regular follow-up sessions to continue and deepen the learning.
