At Home in Our Lives: A Meditation Retreat for People Who Identify as Men
With Brian Lesage, Vinny Ferraro and Yong Oh
September 1 - 6, 2020
It has never been clearer. Now is the time to find a different way of relating to being men in the world.
Join us for this precious opportunity to wake up in a way that is transformative for ourselves, our communities and our world. It is indeed rare to be in a small group of men dedicated to exploring our cultural inheritance. What can we let go of? What will we pass on? Can we remember our birthright of living with an undefended heart?
The retreat will consist of silent sitting and walking practice until early afternoon, followed by meditative small group inquiry, group discussion and dharma talks exploring the theme of this retreat.
Requirement: Listen to Scene on Radio Series entitled –MEN
