As we expand our meditation practices of Mindfulness and Lovingkindness...

As we meet our present moments and lived experiences for what they are...

As we meet everything with the gentleness of our simple awareness...

As we no longer take our lives for granted—a kindness begins to arise that is the energy of Gratitude—the openness and wonder of what the moment really is like—the “WOW!” of truly living—not a thought, or dream, or wish... but our precious life. Please join us on this day long retreat to explore—experiment—enjoy—everything. Beginning and experienced meditators are welcomed.
