In-person and Online
Some in-person spaces remain in this retreat. Use the green button below to register to attend, either in-person or online.
Sandra will give talks, meet privately with both in-person and online attendees, and take part in dialogue meetings with the in-person group and the online group.
Sandra has been leading retreats in both English and Spanish for many years. She began working with Toni Packer in 1988. Previously, she studied for seven years at Zen centers in New York and California.
In an article by Sandra entitled “Awareness invites Awareness: A Meditative Way of Being Together,” she wrote:
Presence invites presence when there is no resistance, no ownership of ideas, experiences or things, no worrying, no hurrying, no judging, no defending—just the ease of life when we meet without wanting things to be otherwise. Certainly we all can participate; presence is free and available to all of us. There is a true beauty in this.
Sandra recently returned from a short stay in Nicaragua where she took part in an All-Day Sitting in Mombacho, pictured below.
