As a 2006 graduate of the year-long Metta Institute program, I encourage you to attend the six-day Cultivating Presence Retreat, August 12-17 in San Rafael CA.
Under the leadership of Frank Ostaseski and Ange Stephens, MA, MFT, the faculty comprises Angeles Arrien, PhD; Zoketsu Norman Fischer, Charles Garfield, PhD, Frances Vaughan, PhD, Ram Dass (via teleconferencing), and Guest Teachers. They’re competent, compassionate, and dedicated to experiential learning.
The program blends contemplative practices with pragmatic tools to offer a unique training experience. Metta Institute has an integrated approach to the emotional, psychological and spiritual dimensions of the dying experience that goes well beyond conventional medical models.
Great teachers, good food, restful environment and 50 CEUs for healthcare providers. Please give it your careful consideration. The attached poster has the details.
