Can the qualities of friendliness, care, joy and balance create the right conditions for the deepening of wisdom? Or are they simply beautiful expressions of it? Or both?

While silently sitting and walking with meditative presence, and with guidance from the teachers, we can open more fully to the life both around us and inside of us. Through the quality of this connection, we can discover for ourselves how living with a sense of fullness and freedom might be possible.

This retreat is open to all.
