Mindfulness Practice Opportunites
Monthly Morning Mindfulness
Morning Mindfulness generally occurs one Saturday each month. Morning Mindfulness begins at 8:30 am and ends at approximately noon, followed immediately by a mindful, brown bag lunch. Practice consists of sitting and walking meditations, dharma talk and discussion. Dress comfortably and bring your own vegetarian lunch if you wish to stay for our community meal. Specific dates and locations will be posted on the website calendar of events and on the "Morning Mindfulness" tab under "Sangha Activities".

We have the pleasure of hosting a dharmacharya (ordained teacher) each spring and fall. This is usually a non-residential retreat, starting Wednesday night at the Compassion & Insight Center, and continuing the following nights and weekend at a clubhouse at Harris Ranch.
Residential retreats are also scheduled and located as close to Boise as possible.
