Preparing for the End Game
No empty theories or dead meditations. We will focus on understanding what true Buddhadharma is, how to cultivate ourselves, and the resultant reward of accomplishment that will be transformative in this very retreat!

MORE THAN WORDS: WRITING AS A MEANS OF DISCOVERY
This is a workshop for those who’d like to write more, but don’t know where to start, or those who’d like to begin again. It’s for those whose self-censor won’t let them get past the first paragraph before sabotaging the whole affair. It’s for those who know they have a story within them but aren’t sure how to release it. Whether you’re looking to journal, write a family history, or maybe finally get that story idea down for posterity, this class may be for you.
