ONLINE Retreat

Each moment is a new year, and yet we have a specific day that we name as this transition. This can be a time of opportunity to renew and reinvigorate our spiritual practice. During this retreat, we will enter into silence in our own homes and engage in the practice of presence.  This retreat will provide an opportunity to practice continuous mindfulness in silence throughout the weekend in sitting and walking meditation. In silence we have the space to delve deeply inward and begin to be present with the flow of experience in a way that allows compassion and wisdom to arise. This retreat is designed for beginners and experienced practitioners.

There is NO FEE for this retreat. The teachings of the Buddha have been sustained by the 2,500 year old tradition of dana, a Pali word meaning "generosity.” Our teacher receives no compensation for his services other than what you provide. Retreatants are encouraged to help Brian lead a life devoted to teaching the dharma by offering donations to him at the retreat's end. In the act of giving, we develop our ability to let go, cultivate a spirit of caring, and honor our inter-connectedness.
