Join us for a 3-day virtual meditation retreat for people of all ages and stages of the meditative path. We will gather in social silence to immerse ourselves deeply in the practice of mindfulness, a heart-opening and transformative process that allows us to cultivate compassionate insight and action in our lives and in the world.
With mindfulness and loving-kindness practices, we increase our capacity for emotional resilience and well-being as we cultivate gratitude and happiness, even in the midst of a global crisis.
The retreat will include daily chanting (in Hebrew and Spanish), meditation instruction, teaching, movement, question and answer time, and meetings with the teachers to support individual practice. Within the nurturing and sacred container of community, we will create a unique space for the emergence of wisdom, depth of practice, empowerment and creative flourishing of all people.
The cost of the retreat is $100 dollars.
Participants who have the possibility to do so will be asked to make an extra voluntary contribution (Dana) to support the teachers. No one will be excluded for financial reasons.
Some financial help is available. Financial aid requests should be made to
Sergio Stern at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sergio will also be happy to answer any questions you may have.
The details of the retreat (such as the schedule) will be sent at the time of registration.
