In these times of uncertainty and social injustice, as our values that we hold dearly are being jeopardized, realizing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream of a Beloved Community can seem unreachable. If we cultivate the courage to walk the path of peace with loving awareness and fierce compassionate action, we can begin to manifest the dream of our collective liberation. Participants are encouraged to bring a journal or writing/drawing pad and an Ancestor item for an altar to be created during this retreat.

This 3-day non-residential retreat will include honoring our ancestral roots, mindfulness practice, silent and walking meditations and group dialogues.

Open to all levels of meditation practice.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this 3-Day Non-Residential Retreat for $135 ($45/day).
