Making Difficulties the Path

Daylong with Noah Levine

Saturday January 21, 2017

9:30am – 4:30pm



When we encounter difficult circumstances in our lives we often turn to spiritual practice to help us get over them, or around them. Instead, our Buddhist practice invites us to turn towards these difficulties and make them part of the spiritual path. Join Noah for a day of sitting and walking practice and dharma talks which will help you turn your perceived difficulties into the path of awakening and freedom.

Suitable for all.

COST: $35-$75 sliding scale, plus an offering of dana to the teacher. Please pay at the highest level you can afford to support our programs and pay it forward for those who have less. Scholarships and work-study are available. No one turned away for lack of funds.
