Love and Spaciousness weekend retreat

July 29 - 31, 2022

Friday 5pm to Sunday 1pm

A deep and open heart and spaciousness are qualities of being that are called forth by a sincere meditation practice. 

 Spaciousness gives us the capacity to feel what we feel courageously, to let emotions move through, to listen deeply and to allow life to unfold with more ease.

A deep and open heart is its own nourishment- being touched by life, being available for friendship with the human and non-human, living with a quality of tenderness towards ourselves and others 

Heart and clarity, deep feeling and deep seeing, mixing together in the great transparent space of awareness- this is the alchemy we’ll explore together. This retreat will focus on practices of spaciousness, devotion and heartfelt embodiment, inviting love and openness to melt, enliven, instruct and awaken.

All experience levels are welcome to attend!

While the exact schedule is yet to be determined, the retreat will unfold something like this:

Friday: arrive – settle in – become acquainted with the practice

Saturday: early wake up – sitting meditation – community meals – a day of silence and Dharma teachings from Jogen Sensei

Sunday: Culminating in a Dharma talk and community lunch

This retreat is only offered In Person
