Cultivating Loving-Kindness A Yoga and Meditation Retreat

For everyone with min. 1 year of yoga practice in any tradition; no meditation experience required.

Slow down. Breathe. Dive deep and rediscover the core of loving-kindness that exists within.

The emphasis of this weekend is on the development of self-compassion and the simple power of the practice of being present. Author of Yoga and the Quest for the True Self; The Wisdom of Yoga; and The Great Work of Your Life, Stephen Cope offers a retreat that weaves together

  • Classic Kripalu Yoga
  • Sitting and walking meditation
  • Loving-kindness meditation
  • Chanting
  • Short dharma talks based on the wisdom of the Buddhist and yoga traditions.

Join Stephen for a spring weekend of delightful contemplative practice—a time of coming home to yourself.

Recommended reading Sharon Salzberg, Loving-Kindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness and Real Happiness: The Power of Meditation; and Stephen Cope, The Great Work of Your Life: A Guide for the Journey to Your True Calling.
