Ehipassiko — Come and See for Yourself
Finding Peace in the Midst of Change—A Daylong for Beginners and Others
Jon Aaron, Lani Miller

Online registration is now closed.
Walk-in registration is available via cash or check.
This retreat is designed especially for those who have never spent a day dedicated to practice but all are welcome regardless of experience.
We all long for peace yet finding this in the midst of the inevitable changes in our lives is not always easy. Equanimity, or peace and balance in the midst of any circumstance, is a quality that can be developed, leading to our greater happiness and freedom.
Freedom in this case is not being free from circumstances but being free within circumstances. Our lack of ease generally arises from wanting things to be different than they are. When we learn to see clearly and accept the ever changing nature of experience our live becomes more easeful.
This day will be a first time opportunity for many to experience a full day of practice in Noble Silence , and will be centered around the Buddha's teachings of impermanence and equanimity.
