Dharma Practice Days
One Friday a month, 9:30 am – 3:30 pm
Starting in September or October each year, a 7- to 9-month practice program is offered. Each year the focus of practice and study is a different theme, sometimes emphasizing meditation practice and sometimes emphasizing broader aspects of Buddhist practice. Each Dharma Practice Day explores the theme of the day in different ways, generally including teachings, guided meditations and small group discussions. These days are usually quite interactive, including the lunch period, which offers a chance to get to know fellow participants.
Past series have focused on: the Ten Perfections, the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, the Eightfold Path, Mindfulness of Breathing and the Five Hindrances.
Please see the calendar for dates of upcoming offerings.
Mindfulness and Wisdom Daylong Retreats

It is recommended for both beginners and experienced practitioners. Taught by Andrea Fella.
