As our meditation practice matures, we understand the importance of relinquishing opinions, grudges, judgments and resentments through honest reconciliation that may lead to deep healing. Since this is not always easy to do, we can develop practices that help us discover the liberating experience of authentic reconciliation that leads to greater understanding and peace.
We will focus and inquire on self-reconciliation – the harm we have brought to ourselves through feelings of shame, unworthiness or deficiency and then explore reconciliation to those we’ve hurt and to those who’ve hurt us.
This retreat will include talks on loving-kindness and reconciliation as well as silent and guided meditations, and small and large group discussion and an opportunity to offer a Koha or Dana (nominal donation) will be welcomed at the end.

What do others who have experienced these Online Mindfulness Retreats with Bob & Jan have to say?
“Perhaps paradoxically, and somewhat unexpectedly, it was a very intimate process. It somehow felt both intense and spacious. I really loved starting my day in community and in practice. I found it set me up to let daily life be my practice in a very real way.”
