    Taking Refuge in the Sangha: Inauguration Week Retreats
    Three upcoming day-long and half-day retreats during Inauguration week are designed specifically to help us to be with ourselves in a kind and friendly way, just as we are. They offer opportunity to draw support from the practices, from time in the beauty of nature, and especially from the gathered sangha--to come back into balance, to re-kindle an inner kindness, and to discern our way forward into Right Action.

    Finding Compassion with Insight on the Inside

    It’s a challenge not to be “in the moment” the first time you walk in the door of a correctional facility.

    The outside door is always the least imposing as it simply marks the entry into an intimating reception area. Most likely you will pause, looking for a friendly face or some type of instructions.

    Inviting Chronic Pain and Illness to Tea

    Living with chronic pain and illness can be exhausting and demoralizing. Some of the effects of living with chronic pain and illness include: self-criticism, doubt, fear, feelings of inadequacy, anger and frustration, grief, stress, and hypervigilance. These are all natural reactions as our bodies ready themselves to fight or flee an enemy that can’t be fought or fled from.

    Many studies have shown that, compared to controls, people who have been trained in mindfulness meditation still feel pain, but their subjective unpleasant experience of the pain is greatly reduced....
