“Love each other or perish.” WH Auden
In addition to learning practices to relax and open the heart, this silent day-long retreat will include something even deeper: how to be love occupied in all your affairs. This retreat will include practices on surrender, connectivity, and closing the gaps where we resist love. Discover lovingkindness from the inside-out and outside-in.
The day will be in silence except for instruction, a dharma talk and periods for question and answer. The retreat is open to beginning and experienced meditators.
