Spending a few hours in sitting and walking practice will give you an opportunity to let go of distractions and give yourself the luxury of time to cultivate present time awareness.  This half day is appropriate for all level of practitioner.

There will be a few spots open for a 10-minute private meeting with Mary. Sign up sheet will be available on the day.
