Join us for this 6-week series exploring enduring practices that steady the mind, expand the heart and support us to engage our lives with kindness, awareness and wisdom. Drawing on both secular mindfulness and the teachings of the Buddha, each two-hour session will include a talk, guided and silent meditation, interactive practices including time to talk with each other.
A digital recording and handout of each week's session will be provided.
This series is designed for those with some meditation experience.
January 24 – February 28
6 Wednesdays, 6:30pm-8:30pm in Arcata
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!

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.
