“We come together in this Holy Place,
To listen to the language of the Heart.
It cannot speak in words;
It cannot think in thoughts
The language of the Heart is silence.”
We alternate sitting and walking meditation and eat lunch in silence. There is an afternoon dharma talk, followed by a gentle yoga session with emphasis on mindfulness to the body and movement. We conclude with the chant of loving kindness and close in a talking circle for those who wish to stay.

Service is a double blessing: expressions of generosity and community open our hearts to others and ourselves becoming a form of mindfulness practice in relationship - Cali Rose
