Daylong Retreat with SIM Community Mentor, Rev. Diane Wilde

September 30 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

“Finding balance in an unbalanced world.” A one-day retreat with SIM Community Mentor, Rev. Diane Wilde

Creating balance both in ourselves and in our efforts to alleviate harm to all sentient beings, has never been so important.  Personal, political and environmental issues are creating deep divisions and suffering.  Along with sitting and walking meditation, we will discuss methods for creating equanimity or balance in our lives. Equanimity enables us to engage skillfully both our inner lives as well as the external world, with wisdom and compassion.

During the day, we will practice light movement.  We will be eating our noon meal in silence, so please bring a lunch.
