News! I'll teach upcoming daylongs on May 10 on Working with Judgments at Spirit Rock; Cultivating Wise Speech: Becoming More Skillful in Your Speech Practice on June 28 in Sacramento; and The Second Foundation of Mindfulness—Transforming the Roots of Reactivity on July 19 in Nevada City.
I'm pleased to have been invited by hosts Rabbi Michael Lerner and Cat Zavis to be among 25 leaders presenting in the Politics of Love & Justice Summit (free and online), May 19-21, creatively connecting spirituality and action in different ways to help build a much more sustainable, just, and caring world.

I'm also looking forward to teaching several retreats, from May to September, on Transforming the Judgmental Mind (at Esalen, May 17-22; at Cloud Mountain north of Portland, Oregon, with Heather Sundberg, July 31-August 6; in Albuquerque, August 21-23; and at Spirit Rock September 14-20, with Heather Sundberg).
I'll also be teaching retreats on another of my loves, Mindful Communication and Wise Speech, with Oren Sofer (July 2-8, in Berkeley, a non-residential retreat, 9 to 5 each day for a week!; and August 25-30, at Vallecitos, near Taos, New Mexico).
I also look forward to teaching, for the first time at Spirit Rock, with Teja Bell and Susie Harringon, a 6-day retreat (June 15-21) on From the Breath to Spacious Awareness, combining concentration practice; insight practice related to the three characteristics of impermanence, suffering, and not-self; and open and spacious awareness, inspired by the Thai Forest tradition and other Buddhist traditions. Details are on the "Schedule" page.
