A weekend retreat online via Zoom

Saturday May 4th at 9:00am- 6:00pm ET
Sunday May 5th at 9:00am - 4:00pm ET

We are all on a journey of healing from some form of loss or grief. How can meditation and mindfulness help us deal with grief? Are there Buddhist concepts that can help me understand and work through my loss? What language should I use that would be helpful? What do I do with my feeling of loss? This retreat is about exploring the brokenness in ourselves. We will use meditation, conversation, and Buddhist concepts to learn how to work to acceptance and peace in our lives.
