Self-Care Sunday is a day-long urban retreat held in the style of a traditional day of open meditation known as a Nyinthün. This day of soft practice structure provides a caring space to nurture your meditation practice while enjoying some uninterrupted down time. 

We’ll ease into our day with guided meditation, a dharma talk, questions and discussion. We'll make time for shamatha yoga (a gentle form of practice) and gentle movement. 

In the afternoon, we'll relax into ongoing sitting and walking meditation. Throughout the day, the community room is available for quiet reading, drawing, writing, or any other nourishing activity you've been craving. 

By taking time to relate to ourselves, we can find new inspiration for relating to others.
