This is a list of all (half-day, day-long, and weekend) Buddhist meditation retreats happening at the Bozeman Dharma Center in the near future.
Please note, we are still not holding in-person events at the Bozeman Dharma Center. We will resume scheduling in-person classes once the COVID-19 threat has passed. All of our events are currently happening through Zoom.
Settling Into The Unknown
Saturday, December 5
8:30 AM – 1:30 PM
with Bozeman Zen Group
Join the Bozeman Zen Group as we explore the intimacy of our experience and finding support and confidence in the not knowing of our lives – day by day, moment by moment. This is especially true and poignant during COVID, racial justice work, burnout and depression. Plus, where will we be as a nation?
There will be periods of sitting meditation, walking meditation and stretching, silent tea/snack break, Dharma talk, and a chance to dialogue. Newcomers and experienced practitioners welcome. Join us on Zoom with meeting number 958-657-6266 or this link. If you are asked for a passcode, use 108108.
All Are Welcome. Prior registration is encouraged but not required. Get more info or sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Suggested donation of $15; no one excluded for lack of funds.
What Is Still True?
Saturday, December 19
9AM – 4 PM
Day of Mindfulness
with Patsy Murphy.
COVID-19 and the transition of administrations are weighing heavily upon us. So, what is still true? The mountains are standing, we are shoveling snow and watching the sunrise and set, we’re making meals and washing dishes, connecting with loved ones and much more. No matter the discord and distance – we are all connected. The interconnectedness among all of us is one of the most powerful teachings of all.
Guest teacher, Patsy Murphy trained in the three main Western Buddhist lineages, guides us in a day of practice in order to cultivate a sense of agency, to understand that a range of responses is open to us. We will practice to remember to breathe, to have space in the midst of adversity to recall our values, what we really care about – and to find support in our inner strength, and in one another. We will practice restorative stretches and movement, guided meditation and will take time for meals, journaling, quiet, walking, reflection and journaling.
Unless otherwise noted, weekend retreats are not residential. Housing for out-of-town participants is usually available upon request. A list of resources for out of town guests can be found here. Commonly asked questions that can help prepare for a retreat can be found on our FAQ page.
