Additional Information

Please join this three day retreat grounded in compassionate mindfulness, meditation and therapeutic practices to find ease and comfort in dealing with anxiety. We will also explore the Buddha’s teachings of the Four Noble Truths as a foundation for the retreat. You’ll learn how to identify and interrupt automatic, entrenched thoughts and feelings that so often lead to that familiar downward spiral. We will link these experiences to Buddhist practices of finding freedom from suffering. You’ll also find support and kind community as you try out skills and tools to reduce the pain and challenge of difficult states of mind and heart. The workshop takes place at San Francisco Zen Center’s Green Gulch Farm, in Muir Beach, California, against the backdrop of a quiet and lush valley that is a 45 minute walk from Stinson Beach and the ocean.
