Contemplation is ancient medicine for what ails us. Join us in discovering the power of taking a loving look at your health challenges and finding your own unigue contemplative path toward well-being. Our hope is that your participation will set you on solid ground for deepening and expanding on the principles, practices and insights gleaned. If you discover that it is a good fit for you, more will be available! Please view our website for a full description of the program.

Program begins with a Friday evening and Saturday "in town" retreat followed by eight weeks of Thursday evening gatherings. We wrap-up the program with a Saturday retreat.  In addition to large and small group teaching and conversations covering the five main principles, activities include a variety of self-assessment/reflection exercises, mindful movement and eating, a variety of contemplative practices, self-compassion and mindfulness excercises, and personal reflection through art and wild-mind writing.
