A Morning of Practice

September 15 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm UTC+0

A Half Day Retreat with Mary Stancavage

Come spend a few hours and give yourself the luxury of quiet practice. With our busy lives we sometimes let our practice slip away. This morning will be an opportunity to let go and get back to cultivating present time awareness. During this half day of sitting and walking, Mary will offer ten minute one-on-one discussion meetings. Topics can revolve around anything arising in your practice: meditation techniques, working with a particular emotion or experience, or trying to integrate a teaching into your life. Sign up will be available at check in.

Cost: This class will be offered on a dana basis and you can pay what you can afford. For more information on dana, please click here.

Please let us know if you can attend and RSVP HERE.
