Valentine’s Day is a day given to love. A time of candy and cards, hearts and flowers, most often we see the day as one for expressing our love outward. What if we turned it around and shone love’s light inward, towards ourselves? Our hearts just might open. And when heart opens, it opens in all directions, embracing our whole life.

At the heart of our practice together will be meditation with koans. With meditation we meet life, noticing the intimacy of the moment rising to meet us, inviting us to com-union (together one). In koan meditation, a short phrase or koan, is a gateway to this intimacy, to the full experience of being alive.

In this day-long retreat, David and Tammy will facilitate meditation, conversation and community building through koans and small group practice. There will be periods of sitting meditation, light heart opening exercises, talks and relational dharma practices. Sitting, sharing and working together we create an environment which supports heart’s opening, deep transformation. Together we wake up. There will also be an opportunity to meet with David in one-on-one interviews.
