We learn to trust the unfolding of this life and act for the benefit of all beings. On Saturday May 23rd, Maddy Klyne, La Sarmiento, Lama Rod Owens, Jacoby Ballard, and Isabel Adon will lead a half day Virtual Retreat for those that identify as LGBTQIA+. This retreat is an opportunity to come together and care for ourselves: to remember who we really are and to reconnect with our innate goodness. We will explore ways of sustaining a clear and open mind, a kind heart, and a strong body. And we will engage with the ancient teachings and practices offered by the Buddha that cultivate wisdom, kindness, compassion, joy, equanimity, and skillful actions. The retreat will include, guided awareness and heart practices, Dharma talks, small and large group sharing, and gentle yoga. This will be the biggest Garrison LGBTQIA+ retreat ever!
