Our main challenge in life is working with our emotional stuckness. At varying times, we get stuck in desire, anger, pride, jealousy and all kinds of stubbornness. We want things our way. The path of compassion is to feel and recognize our stuck patterns within the heart space of meditation. We soften and free ourselves to work and play with the world. Then the compassionate actions of pacifying, enriching, magnetizing, and destroying can arise naturally. In this weekend intensive, we will explore our emotional stuckness and our innate creative compassion.

Join us via Zoom! This 2-day retreat will include sitting meditation, body and creative exercises, walking outside, talks and discussion, and small break out groups. All are welcome to this virtual event.

RETREAT SCHEDULE is 9a-noon and 2p to 5p on BOTH the 29th and 30th.

Please remember to include your email address when you register.  A Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants a day or two before the program.
