Celebrating Awakening, Truth & Community

Everyone is looking for a place of safety and rest in the midst of an uncertain, often chaotic and confusing life. The Buddha’s teaching and practices remind us that we can rediscover a sense of well being within our own nature, a way of living in harmony with life and a welcoming community of support. Let’s fulfill and celebrate our highest aspirations in a safe and silent weekend meditation retreat.

There will be opportunities to speak about your meditation experiences along with meditation instructions that follow the map of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness. Lovingkindness meditation will also be offered.

The retreat is suitable for new and experienced meditators.


Howard Cohn has practiced meditation since 1972, and has led vipassana retreats since 1985. He leads a weekly ongoing class in San Francisco. Howard has studied with many Asian and western teachers of several traditions, including Theravada, Zen, Dzogchen and Advaita Vedanta, and has been strongly influenced by contact with the Indian master H.W.L. Poonja. He has done postgraduate work in East/West Psychology and has a private counseling practice.
