Dear Common Ground Friends,

Registration is now open for our annual President’s Day weekend retreat. Winter is a wonderful time to set aside a long weekend for dedicated practice, to see what fruits may result. Please join Shelly Graf and I if it makes sense in your life. The lottery for both Zoom and in-person spots will be run Monday, January 15th. You can find more information and register here.

Upcoming Practice Periods at Common Ground Retreat Center

Practice periods are non-teacher led, silent meditation retreats. It is strongly encouraged that participants have attended a prior silent residential meditation retreat or many daylong retreats. An experienced practice leader (or two) will lead the practice period and will be available to support you during your stay. The practice leader(s) are not expected to provide formal meditation instruction, but are there to facilitate the daily schedule and provide general support for your independent practice.

Practice Period with Pietro Ferrero and TBD
Thursday, Feb 1 – Sunday Feb 4. Registration coming soon.
