COMING HOME: A Vipassana Meditation Retreat
Time & Location
About the Event
Registration begins at 3:30 p.m. Dinner is at 6:00 p.m., first program begins at 7:30 p.m.
We are deeply longing for Home, the place in which we are spacious, peaceful, connected to our hearts – where we are true to ourselves and to the callings of our spirit. Home is both familiar and profoundly new and fresh.
Connect with your heartfelt knowing through silent and guided meditation, and the embodied practice of sensory awareness, teaching, and instruction. There will be time for questions and discussion.
Come home to yourself. Join us during this precious time designed to nurture body, heart, and mind. This retreat is suitable for both newcomers and experienced students.
