For everyone.

Insecurity and loss are natural parts of being alive. Along with this suffering, each of us carries the longing for a place of refuge where we are at home with our life and spirit. Based on Tara Brach’s latest book, True Refuge: Finding Peace and Freedom in Your Own Awakened Heart, this workshop explores how you can discover a sanctuary of wisdom and peace in your own awakened heart, even in the face of life’s greatest challenges.

Through meditation, guided exercises, and discussion, you learn how to cultivate the three archetypal portals to emotional healing and spiritual awakening: mindfulness, loving presence, and open awareness. This weekend with Tara includes periods of silence as well as the safety and support of interpersonal sharing. Discover for yourself the value of meditation in relieving emotional suffering and helping you find happiness and inner freedom.
