Retreat Dharma Talks

Touching the Earth

Using traditional Buddhist teachings and practices, this retreat explores the non-dual relationship of form and emptiness and its implications for our times of environmental challenge. Practices of embodied well-being, mindfulness and presence, clarity and steadiness of mind will be the foundation for investigation into the experience of "self, other and relationship." Welcoming our lives and letting go and finding balance are some of the themes for reflection.
