Event Descriptions


We host an All-Day In-House Retreat on Sunday, May 6th, 2018, at our Contemplative Arts Meditation Studio. The retreat day will be divided into three sessions: 9:00 a.m. to Noon; 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.; and 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

We warmly invite you to join us for the entire day long retreat with lunch and dinner breaks on your own. However, you are welcome to create your own retreat by choosing to attend just one or two of the individual sessions according to your personal schedule.

The fee for each individual session is $50.00. The cost for the entire retreat of three sessions is $125.00.

We will instruct and guide the healing practices of the 3 Doors: stillness, silence, and spaciousness - to experience the healing warmth of compassion for yourself and others. Everyone is welcome to join in this retreat.

Those of you familiar with these powerful meditation practices and the benefits of retreat are encouraged to invite friends and newcomers.

Saturday/Sunday Meditation Retreats with Gabriel and Marcy: The Healing Power of Contemplation

Through meditation we connect with our essential nature: unbounded spaciousness, infinite awareness, and genuine warmth of positive, healing qualities. In this workshop, through the support of guided meditations, you can directly experience this nature and begin to harness the great healing power of non-conceptual awareness. Opportunity will be given to reflect upon your life, to bring to mind situations in which you may find disquieting or uncomfortable. As you bring naked observation to places you habitually move away from or try to figure out conceptually and instead connect more deeply with spacious awareness, the healing warmth of love, compassion, joy, and equanimity naturally arise.

Monday Evening Women's Meditation Group with Marcy
