Changes and Transitions: Finding Clarity and Well-being in Times of Change

Change is normal and necessary, but often we are unprepared to manage it skillfully. Research shows that meeting change with mindfulness and having specific tools to navigate uncertainty allows us to experience well-being even when life is challenging. Change naturally brings up concerns, fears, and questions that can lead to confusion, lack of motivation, or poor decisions. To help you effectively respond to these challenges, during this workshop participants will have the opportunity to: Use our “Journey through Change Map” to orient yourself in your change; Recognize mind habits that undermine you and learn practices to disengage from them; Identify your values and intentions so you have a basis for making wise decisions; Create a plan for navigating your change. Expect a weekend full of dynamic inquiry and the opportunity to learn essential life skills for meeting your changes and transitions with authenticity, confidence, and clarity. Your commitment to attend all sessions is important and required. If you are unable to attend any part of these sessions, we ask you to consider joining at another time when you can be fully present.

Pride: A Celebration of Wondrous Endurance Beyond Survival and Tolerance

Open to all self-identified LGBTQIA+. The important work of the "rainbow" (or LGBTQIA2S+) community is to abandon the shadows reserved for outlaws and outcasts. During our time together, we will bring mindfulness to our capacity and courage to step out of silhouette and we will collectively acknowledge the special gift of nonconformity that we offer to the world. Join this “celebration of endurance” as we uplift our rainbow community and share in the liberatory practices of the Dhamma.

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.
