About the Event

In these uncertain times, many of us might find it challenging to see the good. But reorienting ourselves to what's good has never been more necessary than it is right now.

In this weekend retreat, drawn from the content of our new book, How Not to Be a Hot Mess: A Survival Guide for Modern Life, we'll teach embodiment practices that reorient participants to what is already good - in themselves, in their lives, and in the world, no matter what is happening. 

The retreat will include sitting and walking meditation, dharma talks and instruction, interactive exercises, and opportunities for discussion and Q&A. Beginners and seasoned meditators alike are all welcome.

Each of our personal situations is unique, and our intentions for this online retreat will vary from one person to another. For someone who lives alone and is retired or temporarily unemployed, an in-home retreat of this kind might feel very similar to a retreat at a meditation center. For someone who is working part-time and has children at home who are out of school, an online retreat might focus more on “meditation in action” and learning to move harmoniously from “formal meditation practice” to mindfully attending a Zoom meeting for work or staying present while cooking dinner. 

This retreat has a flexible schedule that is adaptable to a variety of individual situations. Friday June 12 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Saturday June 13 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Sunday June 14 10:00 am – 12:00 noon.

The preliminary schedule will be available soon.

Teacher Bio: 

Devon and Craig Hase mentor dharma practitioners online, teach meditation on the Simple Habit app, and lead meditation retreats throughout North America and Europe. Devon teaches at the Insight Meditation Society and Spirit Rock and mentors mindfulness teachers for Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach’s Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program. Craig spent six years in a Zen monastery and then completed a PhD in counseling psychology before making his topsy-turvy transition into teaching mindfulness, meditation, and dharma full time. Craig and Devon have studied closely with Joseph Goldstein, Tara Brach, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, and many others in the Insight, Zen, and Vajrayana traditions. These days they live together in urban retreat in Ashland, Oregon, splitting each week between retreat practice and dharma mentoring. Their first book, How Not to Be a Hot Mess: A Survival Guide for Modern Life, offers six really good pieces of semi-Buddhist advice to keep you anchored and steady amidst the chaos of modern life.

Tricycle magazine recently published an interview with Devon and Craig (for Valentine’s Day) entitled Hungry Ghosts, or the Hell Realm of the Dating World: a Buddhist couple describes what the dharma has to say about dating today, and why it’s (usually) not OK to ghost people: https://tricycle.org/trikedaily/buddhism-and-dating/

Registration

These times are financially difficult for many of us – for Flowering Lotus and, we understand, for many members of our sangha. When you register, we ask that you pay at the highest level you are able, to support Flowering Lotus and those whose needs are greater.

Your registration fee will be divided between Flowering Lotus and Devon & Craig. An opportunity to make a dana (generosity) contribution to the teachers and the center will be available at the retreat.
