Recommitting to Our Practice

A Daylong Retreat

with Mary Stancavage

Saturday January 11

9:30am – 4pm




The end of the year can be a busy time and it’s easy to become distracted and disconnected from what’s important. This daylong retreat will be an opportunity to take some precious time for ourselves to reconnect to our practice and our intentions. We will create a container, held with lovingkindness, that will allow us sit simply with our breath and our body and let go of the frenzy that can take over so often.


The day will consist of sitting and walking meditation, dialogue, dharma talks, and an opportunity to set or recommit to an intention for the year. This day is suitable for all level of practitioners and meditation instructions will be given. Bring a lunch.


Cost: Sliding Scale of $40-$70 plus dana for the instructor. Please pay at the highest level you can afford to support our programs and those who have less.


$100 Plus Monthly Supporters attend for no cost. Please Click Here for more info on our Monthly Supporter program.
Some scholarships and work-study is available. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
