Love in Action: Meditation and Relational Mindfulness

September 27 – October 1, 2017

Land of Medicine Buddha, Soquel, CA

Land of Medicine Buddha is an environmentally conscious meditation and retreat center. The campus is located on 108 acres of coastal foothills and stands adjacent to 10,000 acres of redwood forest preserved by the State of California.

This retreat, held in the silent sanctuary of Land of Medicine Buddha, is an invitation to bring greater healing to our relationship with ourself, with one another, with our planet, and with the state of our world. This retreat weaves the personal, interpersonal, and transpersonal medicine that mindfulness offers.

Through sitting and walking meditation, time in nature, writing, and relational mindfulness, we will deepen into the inner listening that leads to compassionate action. Eden will offer dharma talks and one-on-one guidance sessions to help us explore how to live more fully from presence. We will explore what it means to embody love in action in our personal lives, careers, relationships, and relationship to global uncertainty. 

This retreat is for those who do not take casually the profound impact that practice can have on our personal life and the world we live in. Both beginners and experienced meditators are welcome.

  • Sitting meditation
  • Walking Meditation
  • Workshop sessions
  • Personal guidance sessions
  • Mindful Inquiry
  • Mindful Eating
  • Time in nature
  • Yoga and Chanting

The retreat costs cover accommodations and food at Land of Medicine Buddha. Eden’s teaching is offered on a donation basis and you may offer your donation for the teachings at the end of the retreat. We have tried to keep retreat costs down as low as we can; however it takes a lot of resources to put on a 5-day retreat. Payment plan is welcome. You are encouraged to sign up early. Space is limited and housing preferences are first come, first serve.
