Longer Website Description (150 words): This daylong gathering offers an opportunity for people of Asian heritage to deepen their relationship to the Dharma in a supportive community. Anyone of Asian heritage (including Central, East, North, South, Southeast, and West Asian heritage) is warmly welcome to join. Inspired by Rev. Liên’s book Home is Here: Practicing Antiracism with the Engaged Eightfold Path and Chenxing’s book Be the Refuge: Raising the Voices of Asian American Buddhists, our daylong will weave together a range of teachings and practices. In addition to meditation, chanting, and other somatic and creative practices, there will be ample time for dyadic conversation and group sharing. Together, we will cultivate the possibility that “home is here, refuge is now.”

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.
