Retreats are a wonderful way to deepen our practice. And yet, the true value of the Dharma lies in our ability to practice it in our everyday life, at home and at work or school. Every experience of our day is “grist for the mill.”

This retreat consists of relatively short segments of time spread over a period of one week. We will meet for about seven hours per day on Oct. 15, 21 and 22, then for 2 hours on the evenings of Oct. 16 and 19. At each meeting we will focus on how one can engage the practice in his or her everyday life experience at home or at work. Participants will be given assignments in the form of specific practices or reflections to apply throughout each day. Each gathering will include a review of how one has (or has not) been able to maintain a daily practice in the time between formal sessions.


To assure everyone has a safe and wholesome retreat, we ask each retreatant to honor The Five Precepts throughout the retreat. Read more about The Five Precepts here.
