Join us for a weekend retreat for young people (ages 18 – 35) to learn how compassion is an essential part of our true nature. To love is to accept ourselves as we actually are. And it is through self-compassion that we learn to hold our own struggles, which leads to connecting with the sufferings of those around us. 

Befriend your inner life through seated and moving meditation, Dharma talks, contemplative walks in nature, group discussions, and journaling. This retreat will help you maintain a personal practice, and your aspiration to practice true love free from attachment will become a deep intention.
