Connection is an expression of love. It brings blessing and understanding. Together we will use powerful practices from the Buddhist storehouse , combined with transformative stories and an invitation to open to mystery, courage and tenderness. We will discover profound connection with ourselves, one another and the world, and end with a quiet mind and a loving open heart.
