We're saving your seat for the DhamaBridge LIVE Retreat!
Surround yourself with beautiful vistas and healing energy for a weekend of contemplative practice at Bell Valley Retreat, in Boonville, California.
In the presence of timeless dharma wisdom, a sangha to share the path, and your own awakened nature, you will lift yourself out of habit and touch the preciousness of life.
This weekend offers you space to breathe deeply and recommit to all you hold dear.
My vision for this retreat is to bring all of us together in person to experience the connection of sangha, after such a long time, and really immerse in the field of dharma and practice with one another.
This retreat will distill some of the core teachings from my in-depth program, DharmaBridge, into a condensed form. Each DharmaBridge LIVE retreat crystallizes the value of the dharma teachings for the retreatants.
Practicing together in person, in this tranquil setting, we will enter into a deep space of meditative inquiry and inner growth, settling anxieties, creating intimacy with the wholeness of life, and integrating all we learn.
I hope you'll come with us to carry the value of presence deeper into your own heart, remember your inherent luminosity, see more clearly, and cherish all that comes.
When you come on a DharmaBridge LIVE retreat, you'll experience a hand-picked selection of teachings and techniques from the lineages of Buddhism, Śaiva & Śakta Tantra, & modern psychology. You'll open up the dense structures of mind, shift perspective, and generate compassionate attitudes and actions.
Our practices will emphasize meditation and interactive ("antenna") listening, but may also include writing inquiry, creativity, breath work, mantra, movement, and asana.
You'll see how these transformative approaches can weave into daily life, keeping your awareness fresh and your heart clear as you move through a living world.
I've chosen Bell Valley Retreat for this event, so we can benefit from immersion in an environment conducive to insight and introspection. Situated in the stunning beauty of the Northern California landscape, the venue's design incorporates careful attention to deeply nurturing aesthetics.
Check in begins at 4pm on Friday, and check out is by 11am on Sunday.
