A Morning of Practice
A Half Day Retreat with Matthew Brensilver
Saturday, September 17th
We’ll spend this morning practicing together primarily in silence. Practice instructions will be offered and there will be time for dialogue about mindfulness and how the practice fits into your life. We’ll sit together in the shelter provided by silence and sangha. All are welcome.
Cost: $25-60 sliding scale, plus dana (donation) to support the teacher. Scholarships are available. No one turned away for lack of funds.
