Cultivating Joy and Peace in Difficult Times

About This Event

In these challenging times, the practices of mindfulness, loving-kindness, compassion, and other core dharma skills can help us calm and steady our minds, open our hearts, and build resilience to meet with kindness all that is arising in body, heart, and mind. We can then engage and respond wisely and appropriately and be a source of compassion and healing in our families, communities, and our world. In this retreat we will practice the Buddha's central teaching on the foundations of mindfulness, the Satipatthana Sutta, and cultivate compassion and loving-kindness in practices of the heart—in sitting, walking, movement, and throughout the days. The retreat will include meditation instructions, small group meetings, mindful movement, heart practices, and an evening talk. Mary Linda McBride will lead movement practices. This retreat is open to both new and experienced practitioners.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
