About the Event

Suffering and confusion can become steppingstones to the realization  of our true nature. This online retreat is an invitation to quiet your  mind, open your heart, and explore the ways in which the “ten thousand  joys and the ten thousand sorrows” become grist for the mill of  awakening when met with wisdom and compassion. There will meditation  instruction, dharma talks, experiential exercises, and opportunities for  discussion. At this retreat, you will learn to turn disheartening  “problems” into enlivening “challenges” and to celebrate the blessings  of our imperfect lives.
