“Going Home”

Exploring Life’s Journey into Ourselves: A Mindfulness Retreat

 April 26 –  29, 2018

“And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?” Jalaluddin Rumi

When we travel there is an intention, a plan, a moving forward, unforeseen obstacles, and unexpected delights. We are often uncomfortable with the flux that throws us off-balanced. Even though much that is unfamiliar and strange, we try to come home to these new surroundings, to make a part of ourselves. Transformation and healing occurs as we stretch out into life’s journeys. When we touch life this deeply, we discover that our suffering and joy are interwoven with all beings in many circumstances. From such exploration understanding and compassion are born.


How will you go about finding that thing, the nature of which is totally unknown to you?”  Meno


This year we are offering two options to Participate:
