Online: Spring Retreat over 7 Days – The Heart of Practice (Pasadena)

May 7, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

USA-Pacific, All Americas

We are happy to announce for the fourth consecutive year an online week-long practice intensive, May 7-13, 2023.

It is fortunate indeed to have the time to delve deeply into spiritual discovery. This is a rare opportunity to set aside our normal routines, unplug from distractions, and allow ourselves to experience the true relief that comes from cultivating a quiet mind and an open heart. Learning to be gentle with ourselves and “to relax in the doing” is liberating and transformative. Being at home in our own environments may prove supremely challenging. We will have to modify our expectations.

We will still have the support of practicing together. The key is finding the balance between, “not too tight, and not too loose”, between relaxed discipline and awake relaxation. In so doing we discover that peace and happiness are already present within our own mind, we only have to relax in each practice we do and let go of everything that obscures the innate qualities of wisdom and compassion.

We will provide a “Zoom Room” for each separate practice you participate in as well as for whole group sessions.

We hope you will join our online Dharma community retreat. Registration is now open.

Please see the registration page for more details.
