*Daylong Retreat with SIM Community Mentor, Rich Howard

December 30, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Reflections on a Year of Practice

A One Day Retreat with SIM Community Mentor Rich Howard

This will be a day of practice, reflection, and discussion as we honor the end of the year. Sitting and walking meditation will alternate with periods devoted to looking at how our practice is evolving. SIM Community Mentor Rich Howard will support these reflections with perspectives from “Altered Traits,” a new book by Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson that summarizes the science on “how meditation changes your mind, brain, and body.” Bring a lunch and plan to stay at the SDC all day. Half-day attendance is also fine.
