After two years of Covid, many of us are holding stress and grief in our nervous systems and we’re feeling taxed and exhausted. In this half day we will develop and deepen somatic (body) and self compassion (heart-mind) practices to release this trapped energy and better address these challenging times.

This will be an experiential retreat. All levels of experience welcome. Cost is $50 and can be paid at Paypal below or Venmo @onedharma. If paying by check please go here for the info and address. Please include your email address. We are offering a reduced fee for anyone who needs financial support. Please email onedharmaretreat@gmail.com to inquire.
