In this weekend retreat, they offer practical tools and techniques to learn to distinguish between the skillful habits that lead to awareness and deeper connection, and the unskillful habits that reinforce our sense of separation.

Whether consciously or unconsciously, we all live our lives searching for a sense of belonging, yet still find ourselves feeling cut off and alone.

What keeps us from realizing our essential need for real love? Complimentary chanting and meditation practices allows us to reach into our hearts, open them, and take risks by breaking free of the limits and expectations of love we usually carry. In doing so, we create a spacious balance of mind that allows us a more direct, experiential relationship with love. Join us for an immersive weekend to explore the magnitude of the heart and the transformative power of love within us.

This one-of-a-kind weekend retreat allows participants to delve deeper into the practices of kirtan, meditation and yoga. Each morning begins with yoga classes led by Lily Cushman, followed by group chanting of the Hanuman Chalisa led by Nina Rao and friends. Following this is a early afternoon Meditation session with Sharon with time for practice as well as teaching.
