11:45 -  1 pm: Teaching and meditation

Everyday we encounter many challenges both large and small and these can cause us to feel irritated, frustrated, or angry. These feelings can destroy our happiness and peace of mind.


Through learning to view and respond to things differently we can experience the transformative power of patient acceptance -- a vast and profound experience of calm that embraces challenges without being disturbed or harmed by them. It enables us to accept other people, ourself, our life, but at the same time have the clarity to move forward.


In this morning retreat we will explore a series of meditations that help us understand and develop the deep calm of patient acceptance. We can enjoy the space and joy that this acceptance brings and take home techniques that bring calm to our life.
