You don’t need to leave your home to have a retreat experience.

Get a deeper, more experiential understanding of what it means to practice meditation from a self-compassionate perspective. During this three-hour session you will develop skills of mindfulness, kindness towards the self, and an enriched feeling of connectedness to the common struggles that all human beings face.

Most of this retreat will involve quiet solitary practice done “together” on Zoom. There will be periods of brief instruction, guided contemplation practices, quiet seated practice, and opportunities to stretch and practice walking meditation.

This retreat is for individuals who have already received basic
meditation instruction. Practice sessions will vary between 10-40 minutes in length. You will be encouraged to practice kindness towards your body, take breaks as needed, and to maintain the spirit of a retreat by not engaging in other activities during this time.

10-11am: Introduction, Brief Instruction, Seated Practice Period
11am-12pm: Movement Period, Seated Practice Period, Short Break
12-1pm: Brief Instruction, Seated Practice Period, Closing
