On Thursday Nights, from 7-8:30, Looseleaf Hollow is open to all who want to practice sitting meditation. We normally have two sitting periods with a walking meditation session in between.
The sessions are free and open to the public.

A three-hour session for those who are interested in beginning to develop an in-body meditation practice. This session will focus on on the Fundamentals of Somatic Meditation: How to enter the body and how to abide there. The classical term for this is Shamatha, which means “calm abiding.” This is the fundamental basis for Mindfulness.
This style meditation springs from the lineage of the Tibetan master, Chögyam Trungpa.

Call or email to schedule your session.
Suggested Donation: $90

A weekend retreat for those who already have established a basic meditation practice. The heart of the weekend is The Somatic Round — a way of integrating sitting, walking and writing meditation. We will focus  on the Advanced Practice of Somatic Meditation: Abiding in-body and listening deeply to the questions and themes that arise.

This style meditation springs from the lineage of the Tibetan master, Chögyam Trungpa.

$250 private room | $200 shared room— Friday 7PM—Sunday Noon

This style meditation springs from the lineage of the Tibetan master, Chögyam Trungpa.

Sesshin is an ancient form of intense retreat that uses silence and sitting to help "clarify the mind." If you already have a consistent sitting practice and want to take it to the next level-- this is the retreat for you!
As this is our longest, most intense retreat. Most meals will be eaten in silence. There will be opportunities for one-on-one consultation and community conversation — but non-essential conversation will be discouraged in an effort to deepen the silence. 

This style meditation springs from the lineage of the Tibetan master, Chögyam Trungpa. 

$450 private room | $350 shared room Tuesday 7PM —Sunday Noon

If you are ready to begin the spiritual journey from a life of compulsion to a life of contemplation--this day of retreat is for you. The Enneagram provides the best road map I know for that journey. And the Enneagram also acts as a "psychic catalyzer" to quicken your "spiritual metabolism" and give you more energy for the journey. This special one-day format will introduce you to the essence of the enneagram — and to the many ways you can apply it to your daily life. Once you access the energy and momentum of the Quantum Enneagram--they'll be no stopping you! 

Individual Consultations: 1-4 PM. Call or email to schedule your session.

Group Retreats: 9AM-3PM (including lunch). Call or email to schedule your session.

Either the lightning has struck and you realize that you are getting older--or your parents are getting older and perhaps you are caring for them. Or maybe, you’ve retired from your job and are wondering, “Well, what do I do now?” 

The Navigating the Second Half of Life Weekend is designed to be a gentle flow of relaxation, reflection and renewal--all with the goal of learning how to engage with aging as a profound spiritual practice. Come and practice the art of conscious aging!

Since the Middle Ages, hundreds of thousands of pilgrims have walked the 800 km Camino de Santiago across Northern Spain. It is a pilgrimage well-worth taking. The essential human pilgrimage, however, is not to Santiago--but rather, it is the inner pilgrimage to the True Self.  
Buddha, Jesus, Teresa of Avila, Rumi, Dante, Kabir, Mary Oliver, Thomas Merton, Pema Chodron and John of the Cross are just a few of the amazing human beings from all traditions who have walked the Inner Camino ahead of us. We will use their maps for direction, and their lives for inspiration--as we accompany one another along The Way.   
This a perfect retreat for people who want to take "the next step" in their lives!
