This weekend retreat is an opportunity to begin or deepen one’s practice of meditation in a powerful environment that meets the needs of a busy life. As we open to ourselves in the practice of meditation with an attitude of gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as artful, genuine and basically good human beings.

The program’s director Lance Brunner is a renowned and sought-after teacher for his playful skill in engaging with contemplative arts and our sensory experience as a path to awakening. 

Level I: The Art of Being Human is the first in a series of five weekend retreats. Each retreat includes thorough meditation instruction, periods of meditation practice, one-on-one meetings to clarify questions, talks by senior teachers, group discussions and a concluding reception.

This program is open to everyone. There are no prerequisites required.

Level 1 participants are invited to attend on a complimentary basis Sunday, Sept 29th: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM the program:

The Mind's Play: Meditation, Contemplative Arts, and the Creative Life
