Dhamma: Pure, Deep, and Simple (2021)

November 26, 2021 – November 30, 2021 all-day

Dhamma: Pure, Deep, and Simple

An Online Meditation Retreat


Michele McDonald, Steven Smith, and Jesse Maceo Vega-Frey

assisted by Darine Monroy

November 26 – 30, 2021

Join us for a pure and powerful Dhamma teaching and engage in the practice that awakens deeply embodied wisdom and kindness.

Our minds all have the ability to pierce through the delusions that enshroud us and to abide in the truth of reality in ways that are tender, clear, strong, and wise. But it will not happen on its own or by wishing it to be so. It takes dedicated time, practice, and the protective conditions under which we can meaningfully explore the nature of mind and body – and of our resistance to it.

Join this committed group of teachers and fellow-yogis for an intensive period of self-retreat supported by a range of online offerings. While your daily schedule will be largely up to you to decide, the program will include:

~ Daily practice instructions – live and recorded

~ Daily Dhamma talks

~ Daily Q&A Sessions

~ Group chanting in the evenings

All content will all be offered live and will also be recorded and posted on our online platform so that yogis in various time zones can listen and watch at their convenience.

THIS IS OUR YEARLY “BIG TENT” OFFERING. We welcome the participation of all yogis regardless of their ability to join as full-time intensive yogis or part-time yogis – as your life allows. We encourage participants to commit to the basic parameters of silence and seclusion during this retreat – and not have significant obligations outside your responsibilities as a yogi. But we also welcome people who can only come for one or two sessions a day and may choose to simply watch the recordings over the following month. All recordings will remain available until January 2022.
