[Live-Stream] Monthly PIMC 1st Saturday Retreat Series, with Robert Beatty and Betsy Toll (Sat., June 6, 2020)

Primary tabs

NOTE: In response to the social distancing mandates to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, PIMC has ceased all on-site gatherings for now. But, PIMC is still a community even when we cannot physically gather together. This experiment with a live-stream, day-long retreat is yet another way the PIMC Teachers Council is working to maintain community continuity using the internet.


Please us for our 1st Saturday Live-Stream Retreat on June 6, 10am - 3pm, co-led by Robert Beatty and Betsy Toll.

The theme for this retreat is: Love in a Time of Unknowing

Spring this year brought challenges that no one saw coming. When Covid-19 arrived, the certainties of life we’ve long taken for granted disappeared. Days now have their own unfamiliar quality, and more than ever, the future is unknowable.

Entering this confusing time can easily result in contraction, a protective response to become more defended. Noticing that, we can also see its potential to open the heart and nurture insight.

Please join Robert Beatty and Betsy Toll for meditation, conversation, and reflection on using these days of late spring and early summer as a time of opening and renewal.


The first Saturday retreat series is a perfect opportunity to jump start or reinvigorate your daily practice, connect with community members, and gain a comfortable introduction to the power of noble silence. 

Although these retreats are great for beginning students, they are not designed as introductions to meditation. Some basic meditation experience is required to get the most out of this experience.

(These regular monthly retreats at PIMC are always the 1st Saturday of the month.)
