Daylong Retreat: Finding Joy in a Complex World, with Phoenix Soleil @ Good Medicine

How do we experience joy when it feels like the world is crashing all around us? Buddhism supports developing a relationship to both joy and suffering that allows one to hold these two intense and fundamental aspects of life with equanimity and wisdom.

 

In this day of silent sitting, walking, metta (lovingkindness) practice and relational practice in dyads and groups, we will be exploring our capacity to hold our pain and joy so that we can increase our resiliency and vibrancy in the midst of engaging with our world.

 

Date + Location: Saturday, December 7th, 10am - 4pm @ Good Medicine Collective at 231 York Street, Portland, ME.

This event is co-hosted with Portland Dharma House
