Time & Location

About the Event
Stepping out of our daily routine and the busyness of our lives is a radically supportive act. When we take this step, we have the opportunity to allow the natural processes of the mind to unfold in an environment free of mundane distraction. Observing the unfolding process brings about valuable insights into the unconscious beliefs, opinions, thought patterns, and biases we hold.
On this retreat, we will practice Yin/Yang yoga, Qigong, sitting/walking meditation, pranayama, as well as practices to connect with our deepest, truest heart. The intention will be to create the conditions for entering into our innate, abiding awareness of this life, just as it is, free from judgment. The Buddha’s teachings of mindfulness and compassion will be shared and will serve as the framework for which the retreat will be held.
Our time together will be supported by social silence and the towering redwoods that comprise the beautiful, natural setting of the Land of Medicine Buddha.
