  • Daylong Meditation, Hiking & Movement Retreat

    Sink into the peace of contemplative practice by spending a quiet day in nature. Our retreat will focus on cultivating mindful awareness amidst the beauty and wonder of our natural surroundings through gentle movement, sitting meditation, and a silent hike. 

    We'll begin the day with movement and meditation then settle into the steady rhythm of a silent hike through the lush old growth forest along the Ossagon Trail in Prairie Creek State Park. At just under 2-miles we’ll arrive at the beach where we'll rest, talk with each other over a picnic lunch, and enjoy a little more movement and meditation. After lunch we’ll silently hike back to the trailhead and end our day with time to talk and a short meditation. The hike will be about 4 miles round-trip on gentle moderate terrain.

  • Wisdom Rising: Exploring the Path of Parenting as We Age

    As parents of any age, we know the depth and breadth of our commitment and our love for our kids. As our kids grow, move into their own lives, perhaps have their own children, what is our role? How do we define our relationship as parents to our kids both young and grown?  As we age, what do we need, what do they need? How do we help create and support the relationship with healthy boundaries?

    Join me and Samantha Akers for this beautiful in-depth exploration of parenting through the lens of the Dharma, the teachings of the Buddha. We’ll especially work with the teachings on Wisdom, Ethics and the Heart. Each 2-hour session will include guided and silent meditation, a talk and group discussion.
