  • Drop-In Sitting Group

    Mindfulness Meditation classes are for anyone interested in sitting with a group in supported silence. Instructions and guided meditations focus on developing mindful awareness, wisdom and compassion. Anyone of any background is welcome, both experienced and new meditators alike. No sign-up is necessary.

  • Refuge & Renewal:Connecting Contemplative Practice to Daily Life

    Over the course of four afternoon retreats, we’ll explore how the development of our inner lives directly connects with and influences what we do every day - personally, interpersonally and in our communities. It’s where the rubber meets the road, where we experience the fruits of our practice.

    Each afternoon will include sitting and walking meditation, a talk, gentle yoga and interactive practices. We'll be joined by special guest yoga teachers Janine Melzer and Emily Trutt.

    Come join us. Sink into an afternoon of peace and stillness and let the mind settle, the heart open and the body relax.

    Customize these retreats to fit your schedule. Join us for any or all four retreats!

  • Everyday Mindfulness for Everyday Life

    Mindfulness and meditation give us the skills and resources to cultivate a clear mind, a kind heart and the ability to transform reactivity to discernment and responsiveness, especially in challenging times.  

    Over the course of seven weeks, we'll explore mindfulness of the breath & body, thoughts & emotions, loving-kindness & ethics, and empathy & forgiveness from both secular and Buddhist perspectives. Each class includes guided & silent meditation, in-depth practice discussion and some interactive practices.  

    Beginning and veteran meditators welcome!   


    None. Please come with the willingness and curiosity to begin a meditation practice or refresh an existing one.
