Meditate in community at the Benedict Canyon Retreat House, within beautiful nature-rich environs. Share the collective wisdom related to sitting meditation practice.
What’s most alive in your practice? What are you struggling with? In a supportive group environment, we will meditate, choose readings to reflect on and topics to explore.
We’ll focus most on the challenges you might be facing as a Young-ish Adult including; how to live the teachings of mindfulness and compassion in daily life, navigating transitions, relationships and careers.
If you have a topic that you would like to bring more mindfulness to, bring it to the group!
