The Eye of the Storm Finding Peace and Stability in the Midst of Chaos and Disorder

For all levels.

Find your own center, a place of clarity, focus, and stability in the midst of challenging circumstances. Follow in the footsteps of the Buddha and other great teachers in a retreat with David Nichtern that cultivates mindfulness, compassion, and the ability to listen deeply and act skillfully.

If your “normal” levels of personal stress and anxiety have been dwarfed by the daily struggle to make sense of rapidly shifting current events swirling around you, this program can help to clarify your relationship to all that activity. It includes a variety of meditation techniques, offering instruction, practice, talks, discussions, and the opportunity to speak and listen from the heart. David is especially open to exploring the relationship between clear seeing, contemplative practice, and skillful action in the world.

Required reading David Nictern, Awakening from the Daydream: Reimagining the Buddha’s Wheel of Life.
