Join us for a weekend retreat to explore the engaging and timely practice of Social Meditation.

As human beings, we’re wired for social interaction. We want to connect. We want to belong. Social Meditation illuminates and strengthens our innate connectedness in the present moment. The practice also fosters emotional resonance, helping us connect with our own wisdom, as well as the collective wisdom of the group. Together, we create a culture of care that is a powerful support for individual practice, as well as a support for the community. When we feel a sense of belonging, our meditation journey is more joyful, meaningful, and sustainable.

Over the course of the weekend, we will practice sitting meditation and Social Meditation. Through dialog and talks, we will work with our social patterns in a transformative way.
