Upcoming Events

Living in the Challenge Zone

Oct 30 - Nov 1, 2020 (An Online Retreat)

Sage-ing International and Shambhala Mountain Center

There’s a saying in India that “The world is like a grinding stone. It will either grind you up or it will turn you into something beautiful.” In this unprecedented time generated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the many other powerful changes we’ve recently experienced, this aphorism takes on an entirely new level of meaning.


This online retreat is an invitation to quiet your mind, open your heart, and explore the ways in which the difficulties in our lives can become a curriculum for awakening when met with wisdom and compassion. Sitting and walking meditation practice will be the centerpiece of this weekend. There will be meditation instruction, dharma talks, experiential exercises, and opportunities for discussion.


At this retreat, you will learn to turn disheartening “problems” into enlivening “challenges” and to celebrate the blessings of our imperfect lives.

A Daylong Retreat

Grief, Joy, and Awakening

December 3 - 6, 2020 (Online)

Southern Dharma Retreat Center

This is a time when we’re all experiencing an unprecedented opportunity to gain insight into what the Taoist tradition calls “the 10,000 joys and the 10,000 sorrows.” Buddhist teachings offer us wise methods and perspectives for navigating our day-to-day challenges.The primary focus of this retreat will be the practice of sitting and walking meditation. There will be dharma talks, meditation instruction, and small group discussions. In addition, we’ll do some interactive exercises and guided meditations that are designed to deepen our understanding of the powerful experiences of grief and joy that are inherent in the process of spiritual awakening.
