Finding Joy, Right Where You Are

Home Zoom Retreat, Saturday, July 18, 9 a.m. – Noon

Led by One Dharma Instructor Jennifer Wang

In this time of social upheaval and global pandemic, what role does joy play? Can we learn to nurture joy from within, in this moment? In this half-day retreat, we will explore these topics and how they relate to current events together through meditation (guided and silent), teachings, and group discussion.

The schedule will include periods of sitting meditation, walking meditation, a dharma talk, group discussion, and breaks.

All you need is a quiet space in your home, a comfortable chair or cushion, and a device with an internet connection for Zoom. This retreat is offered on a sliding scale from $1 up to $50, please pay at the maximum of what you can to support those who may not be as able to pay much right now.
