2017 Retreat Themes

Our programs help people bring contemplative practices into their lives, work, and communities. Most are open to the public and suitable for beginners as well as experienced practitioners. In 2017, many of our retreat offerings will focus on the arts and the Atlas of Emotions.

Please note: This list does not represent our full list of retreats. Find the complete list here.
Additionally, we are still programming retreats and events that fall under the themes below for 2017. We will be adding more to list by January 2017. 

The Arts

We believe that the arts are an essential and natural expression of wisdom. Please visit our online calendar to find special retreats for visual artists, poets, writers, and musicians.

Atlas of Emotions

Understanding and Working with Emotions 

Inspired by the Atlas of Emotions created by the Dalai Lama, Paul Ekman, Stamen Design and Dr. Eve Ekman, many of our upcoming retreats focus on healthy ways to work with our emotions. We all have rich, deep, and complex emotional lives. How can we begin to make sense of and work with all of our emotions—both the destructive and positive ones?
