Refund and Event Policies

This event is the in-person version of a hybrid daylong retreat which will take place both in-person and online. To register for the online version of this event, click here.

In this daylong retreat, we will delve into the two wings of an awakening & liberating meditation practice: mindfulness and lovingkindness. We will have periods of guided meditation, walking meditation, a Dharma talk, and a discussion focused on the connection between mindfulness and lovingkindness. Both mindfulness and lovingkindness meditation practices strengthen one another in developing a flourishing, wise, and heart-filled life.

Please pack a lunch and wear comfortable, breathable clothing and footwear. Limited parking is available so please carpool if possible.
