By Donation
There is no set cost or door fee, In the Spirit of sharing and support, offer what you can through a donation.

Learn how to utililize Meditation to reveal the calm awareness that cuts through confusion and chaos. Different Styles, Theories and Practices of Meditation will be explored in a facilitated, yet informal manner, as a creative discussion rather than a “this is the way” approach. We will look at both 

“Yin/Yang” practices, which utilize elements and methods that rely upon a dualistic framework and non-dualistic “Transcendent” practices . Sunday will be oriented as a day of personal retreat. It will be a day of “Silence” where we focus upon our Essential Inner Nature and apply our individual practice in a focused group setting. There will be 2 morning sessions, a lunch break and 2 afternoon sessions.
