Sit like Siddhartha: Introduction to meditation, a Buddhist approach

Please join us for a weekend of inquiry and meditation in the beautiful and inspiring setting of Sea to Sky Retreat Center.  This program is open to all who want to learn the profound practice of calm abiding meditation and enjoy the carry over benefits of experiencing everyday moments more fully. We will cover Siddhartha’s journey to his enlightenment under the Bodhi tree and discuss our rare human opportunity to do the same and Bodhicitta, the heart of his teachings. This retreat will be led by Siddhartha’s Intent instructor Cydney Kawamura
