Living Dharma: Essential Teachings for Our Times

Join us in this silent retreat as we explore and practice together the key teachings of the Buddha.
-- What is mindfulness?
-- The Four Noble Truths: A path to liberation
-- Working with hindrances to our meditation practice
-- The three characteristics of existence
-- At home in the brahmaviharas–the heart practices of lovingkindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity
These core instructions form the foundation for meditators to build a practice that leads us toward wisdom, compassion, and skillful, embodied living.
