A Love Supreme

With Vinny Ferraro and Hakim Tafari

September 1 - 6, 2023

Program is fully booked

Our time will be spent exploring the Buddha’s heart teachings aka “the sure heart’s release.” We’ll look at cultivating different expressions of love and working with what gets in the way. Together we’ll practice taking refuge in the natural radiance of the unobscured heart.

This path of awakening leads us towards the wisdom of how to more fully inhabit our lives. As our understanding deepens, we’ll learn how to care for our whole selves, and how to live life with a wiser and undefended heart.

The silent retreat will include practicing mindfulness in many different postures, whether it’s sitting, walking, movement, eating or sharing together.
