This retreat will include dharma talks on the four elements of earth, water, fire and, wind as well and meditation practices on the characteristic of each element. These characteristics will be located meditatively in the body and experienced as deeply as is possible. This practice helps deconstruct our belief in the solidity of the body/self and reveals no abiding self that can be located.

The format of the retreat includes:

  • talks, instruction, and guided meditation practices
  • group discussion on the practices and experiences
  • ample opportunity for questions or comments with Stephen
  • three-month access to the retreat recording
