Think of this weekend retreat in the California redwoods as “Being Human School.” It’s a relaxed and practical distillation of some of what meditators have been learning for 3,000 years. There will be meditation, and movement, and interpersonal connection. Also there will be jokes.
We will explore the core existential principles that are trained across all meditation techniques, delving into the dynamics behind mindfulness, loving-kindness, and choiceless awareness meditation. We’ll dig into the magical mysteries of concentration, clarity, equanimity, and friendliness. And then we’ll build a customized practice that works for each of us.
Three days of sitting and discussion, with some movement and nature excursions to keep the energy moving and the body limber. Excitement will be had, as well as peaceful sighing and the occasional existential reorientation.
As we understand more about how the practice of meditation works for us, we can begin to be our own teacher. And then we pass it on, so the practice can find its unique expression in someone else.
This is how sanity becomes a social movement.
This retreat is appropriate for all.
“Jeff is a fantastic teacher: funny, empathetic, open-hearted, wise, and smart as a whip. The workshop was a game-changer for my meditation practice.”
“Jeff Warren is a wonderful teacher for those of us just beginning to get deeper into a meditation practice. I have no doubt he can support more experienced/seasoned mediators as well. I found him down to earth, easily able to relate to and a teacher I would be interested in taking a longer meditation retreat with. A really positive and welcoming experience for me.”
“It was a fantastic program that was able to reach people of many different levels of meditation experience. Jeff Warren uses humor and his own experiences to de-mystify meditation in a way that makes it accessible to anyone!”
“Jeff Warren did a fantastic job! He is an excellent speaker and teacher and I’d be thrilled to attend any program he offers in the future.”
