      Present Moment, Wonderful Moment: Still Water Spring Three-Night Practice Retreat

      During our Easter-weekend Practice Retreat we will have the time, the spaciousness, and many favorable conditions that will encourage our minds to calm and our hearts to open. Through Noble Silence and mindful sitting, walking, eating, and living, we will practice embracing and looking deeply into what is present in each moment.
