Event Description

In this retreat we will look at how to develop a wise mind and a kind heart. By using the 16 Guidelines as a mindful practice we can transform our lives and the world around us.

The 16 Guidelines are being used as the foundation of ethics within mindfulness, currently being taught at the University of Toronto as the system to explore how to encounter and embody the values of mindfulness.

How we Think How we Act How we Relate How we Create Meaning
