Navigating the Difficulties in Practice and Life
A weekend non-residential retreat with Adrianne Ross

Retreatants: Friday evening and Saturday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Sunday 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Why does meditation sound so easy to do and yet seems to be so hard? In this retreat we’ll explore the obstacles both to our practice and to embodying the dharma in our lives. This exploration can transform these obstacles into a way of welcoming and being present with our whole life. In this silent retreat with alternating sitting and walking practice, there will be some guided meditation and instruction as well as opportunities to ask questions about your practice. This retreat will be suitable for both beginners and experienced practitioners; obstacles arise no matter how long we have been practicing!
