OHP Online Mini Retreat 10/2-4, 2020

With Susan Piver

October 2

Additional Event Dates: 10/3-4

Our online retreat will begin on a Friday afternoon and end Sunday afternoon (ET). We will practice a lot of meditation and also go over our other core practices: gratitude, our daily practice, the five sacred acts that bring mindfulness into everyday life, and the foundational principles that fuel the spiritual path. This is a chance to connect with each other and share what is going well and what is challenging. As a community, we will take time out of our normal busy-ness to reconsider who we are, what is important, and how to recenter our highest priorities within everyday life.

This event is exclusive to Open Heart Project Sangha members.

If you can join live, great! If not, each session will be recorded so you can log in at the time that works for you.
