Feeling stressed or overwhelmed?  Self-criticism and self-loathing undermining your confidence?  In this silent retreat, you'll enjoy guided meditations that enable you to experience the extraordinary potential for happiness and emotional freedom that is the actual nature of your mind.

We will observe silence during our brief breaks to enhance our meditative experience. Join us at the end for an informal Q&A and light refreshments if you wish.
