Loving-kindness, Compassion and Equanimity: Taking Refuge in the Wisdom of Heart Practices
Friday, April 23-Sunday, April 25
Registration for this event is closed. Please see the Taking Refuge Weekend retreat on July 9-11.
Join us for a nourishing weekend of calming the mind and the heart practices of loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity, which provide true refuge in the face of fear, uncertainty, stress, and worry.
There will be periods of silent and guided sitting meditation, walking meditation, movement, dharma talks and small group discussion to support your practice. Together, we will join in community for deep listening to our own hearts as we open to life unfolding.
This weekend has been formatted specifically to be an online retreat, accessible for people who are staying home and would like to deepen their practice. The schedule will be supportive, whether you are able to devote a weekend to silent practice or need to incorporate your home life into the weekend retreat.
The online schedule will be as follows (please note, schedule may shift slightly). An updated schedule will be sent to all prior to the opening of the retreat:
Friday: 7:30-9 p.m., Welcome, Opening Meditation and Retreat Orientation
