Meditation Teaching

Join me for a residential meditation retreat at one of the places below. I recommend you follow an introductory insight meditation class (online or in person) and ideally a daylong of practice before jumping into a multi-day retreat.*

*Also, if you have recently experienced a significant trauma or are having difficulty with psychological stability, a silent intensive residential meditation retreat is not recommended.

There are many different ways to connect with Dharma teachings that can be helpful during different periods such as reading Dharma books, listening to Dharma talks, chanting,  mindfulness in daily life activities, , practicing generosity, engaging with the practice of the precepts, and more.
