Sunday Monthly Practice Group, Boston, Massachusetts, USA - Online

About This Event

We’ll focus on the Buddhist teachings around navigating—and seeing deeply into—the eight worldly winds. These winds are familiar and universal: loss/gain, pleasure/pain, fame/shame, praise/blame. The winds are mentioned in the Lokavipatti Sutta. On September 20, we’ll focus on loss/gain.

Naturally, the worldly winds can lead to suffering. But Buddhist teachings can help us practice with them to cultivate awareness, equanimity, and compassion.

Please join co-facilitators Jan Surrey, Marsha Lawson, and Annie Hoffman for a morning of silent meditation, relational practice, and mindful movement.

The group generally meets once a month during the academic year.

Fall 2020 dates: Sundays, October 18, November 15, and Dec 20.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

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.
