Summer Week-Long Meditation Retreat: Nelson, BC

with Holly Gayley
July 7 / 9:00 AM - July 13 / 9:00 PM

Embodiment Weekthun

Retreat is a potent way to deepen in the practice of meditation. In our week of group retreat (weekthun), our meditation practice will draw upon classic instructions in calm abiding (shamatha) and the theme of embodiment from Shambhala meditation. To support this, the retreat will include daily guided meditation, contemplative movement, and walking meditation in nature.

Shastri Holly Gayley has been practicing meditation since 1991 and is a shastri (senior teacher) in the Shambhala tradition. She lives in the mountains of Colorado and teaches courses on Buddhism at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
