Saturday One-Day or Half-Day Retreats

These programs have live teachers and are offered for a sliding-scale suggested registration fee, but no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.


Living Intimately from the Heart of Awareness

with Dorothy Hunt
September 15



Enlightenment is simply intimacy with all things.
—Zen Master Dogen

We can only be awake Now. Living awake means living intimately and directly, without separation from the deepest truth of our being, and without separation from the moment. While our true nature is actually empty of definition, empty of concepts, and empty of a separate “me,” it can be felt, intuited, sensed in our daily lives. This retreat day will include silent sitting, experiential exercises, dharma talks, and discussion around the theme of living intimately, living now, and living with devotion to discovering and embodying our deepest truth.

Dorothy’s latest book, Ending the Search: From Spiritual Ambition to the Heart of Awareness, will be available for purchase and book signing during her weekend with us.
