A Heart Man is Good to Find: A Daylong for Men

Walk-in registration is available via cash or check.
What can men gain from practicing together? This day of practice will be an opportunity to explore our vulnerability and our willingness to open our lives up more fully to the Four Noble Truths. How do we work with our desires (material or otherwise) so as to not contribute to our suffering? How can we learn to acknowledge and work with those fears that might lie at the heart of our pain? Through practice and dialogue we will explore these questions as they directly relate to us as men.
