This is a wonderful opportunity to either start or deepen your meditation practice.  Past retreat participants have reported many benefits including a deepened experience of mindfulness and compassion, a renewed commitment to practice and a deep sense of rest, relaxation and healing.

Practicing in this Mini-Retreat group setting is highly beneficial to sustaining and deepening your practice.  We look forward to seeing you at one of our retreats in the near future.  Tuition $30.
