There’s an undercurrent that carries us like a great river and we’re not always aware of it.
Short or long retreats are a way to take a deep dive, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced meditator. Our retreats feature daily meditation, teaching, and conversation; movement and writing sometimes find their way in on a voluntary basis as well.
