"Perfect ease is not an ordinary part of mindset; it may take some practice.”

Inspired by quotations from Tarthang Tulku, this retreat is an opportunity to bring relaxation and balance into our lives. Through breathing and relaxation exercises, meditation and inquiry, we soften the body, breath and mind. Working with the quotations provides insights for reflection and appreciation for our journey.  Take this opportunity to become quiet and turn inward.
