Ehipassiko — Come and See for Yourself
A Heart Man is Good to Find: A Daylong for Men
Gary Singer, Jon Aaron
April 30, 2016
10:00 am - 05:00 pm
Online registration is now closed.
Walk-in registration is available via cash or check.
As men, we’re under continual, invisible pressure to avoid and repress our feelings, often leaving us feeling as though we’re one-dimensional versions of ourselves. This retreat will focus on the teachings around cultivating compassion, joy, and connection. We’ll explore how we can bring these teachings into our lives and how we might begin to let go of the armor of traditional ‘masculinity’.
*Registration fee does not include teacher support/dana.
Teacher support: Suggested starting donation for a daylong is $30 but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. All donations go to support the teacher(s).
