Pathways to Presence; a Dharma, Poetry, Meditation & Writing Retreat with James Crews & Heidi Bourne

Lead by: Heidi Bourne

Dates: Apr 7, 2024 - Apr 11, 2024

Join beloved poet James Crews and dharma teacher Heidi Bourne for 5 days and 4 nights for a very special springtime hybrid retreat. Come explore the everyday experience of living inside of joy and sorrow, as we make sense of a troubled world through the beautiful, profound, and nurturing practices of mindfulness, meditation, poetry and writing. Meet us online from your home or in-person for this very special retreat.

Drawing on the teachings of the Buddha and secular mindfulness, our retreat focuses on cultivating the capacity to skillfully navigate our everyday lives with a steady receptive mind and a courageous wise heart. Woven throughout peaceful silent mornings and interactive afternoons, our practices include foundational and transformative guidance for meeting ourselves with lovingkindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity.

Each day includes meditation and writing, daily dharma talks, gentle mindful movement, small group practice discussions, along with ample time for swimming in the pond, enjoying a hot tub, taking a hike, and space for relaxation and connection.

Everyone is welcome – new and experienced meditators, new and experienced writers.
