Weekend Silent Retreat: Tending and Befriending – Cultivating Self-Kindness (online)

Friday, September 3-Sunday, September 5

One of the most pervasive challenges human beings face is the inner critic, that part of the psyche that blames and judges ourselves and others. Most of the time the critical voice remains unexamined, so it continues to run in the background, coloring all of our experience and causing suffering. When we bring the critic into conscious awareness and practice holding it and ourselves in kindness, we can start to gain insight into, and freedom from its dictates. This practice is valuable for meditators at any level of experience. 

In this retreat, we will explore practices that cultivate self-kindness, focusing on bringing kindness to the experience of the inner critic.We will do this through dharma talks, guided meditations, exercises, and group meetings with the teachers.  

Note: Because this is an online retreat, participants are encouraged to find space of relative quiet, limiting the amount of interaction with others in the environment as much as possible. Participants may join by internet or via phone. 

Participants will be given the Zoom link in the registration confirmation email and again via email the week before the course begins.
