What Are Love and Compassion Really?

A one day retreat with Robert Beatty and Doug Pullin, April 14th 9am to 4:30pm.

We use the word love to mean many things. The spectrum goes from passionate romantic falling in love all the way through loving a restaurant or vacation beach, to selflessly loving a child, to loving all beings. The Buddha taught that love is our true nature, which can be revealed and developed through cultivation.

Half-Day Women's Retreat

Exploring Our Strength, Wisdom and Resilience - March 31, 2018 9:00am - 1:00pm.

It's not easy being human in these emotionally and psychologically fraught times. Being a woman brings its own issues to the full realization of our human and spiritual nature.

This retreat is intended to explore both the barriers we might face and the wide range of gifts that we, as women, can bring to enrich our journey.
