This yearlong Dharma and Yoga certificate program integrates Buddhist wisdom teachings and meditation practice with āsana, prāṇāyāma, and somatic movement. In the teaching of Yoga and embodied meditation, Dharma and Yoga are interwoven as one path to awakening. The training includes silent retreat, community connection, and structured support for deepening your personal practice. Our approach is centered on accessible and trauma-informed practices that nourish belonging and provide systematic grounding in the essential practices of these two great traditions.

A Year to Live

In this year-long program, based on the book A Year to Live by Stephen Levine, we will focus on waking up and living life more fully through the exploration of death as spiritual practice. The Buddha recommended that we contemplate the inevitability of our death in order to help us awaken to the fragile, fleeting, and precious nature of our lives. All are welcome as we join in community for this year-long practice in forgiveness, gratitude, and letting go.
