    TOUCHING THE EARTH

    cultivating WISDOM AND LOVE THROUGH INSIGHT MEDITATION

    A DAYLONG RETREAT WITH ERIN TREAT & YONG OH

    Saturday, September 15 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm

    Join us for an opportunity to practice the timeless teachings of the Buddha as a pathway to peace, freedom, and the compassionate heart. 

    As we deepen our capacity to pay wise and kind attention to our embodied experience, we come to know more fully what it means to awaken in the midst of our life—to be deeply connected to experience yet not bound by it.

    This silent day of practice will focus on cultivating presence and awareness that embraces the moments of our lives with acceptance and wisdom. The retreat will include sitting and walking meditation with instruction, dharma reflections and short periods of group sharing. This retreat is suitable for both beginning and experienced practitioners. 

    COST: The cost of the retreat is on a sliding scale of $25-$45. Scholarships are readily available by contacting Terry Leonard at 50tleonard@gmail.com or 970-799-0084. We kindly ask those seeking scholarships to reach out to Terry prior to registering as refunds are difficult with our system. Thank you!

    Registration fees support the Durango Dharma Center. This retreat is offered on the basis of dana, a practice of mutual generosity that has been alive since the time of the Buddha. At the end of the retreat there will be an opportunity to offer a donation to Erin Treat and Yong Oh.
