SanghaDay_smThis year our theme is meditation – specifically the Brahma Viharas, or development loving-kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity. We will explore these qualities and how we can bring them more into our lives. We will connect with each of the four brahma-viharas through meditation, talks, discussion, and devotional practice. And of course, as always, we will practice together in the spirit of sangha and spiritual friendship. This retreat is for members of the Portland, ME, Boston, MA, and New York City, NY sanghas.

* At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.

* Retreat participants are asked to work together to prepare and clean up after meals and to help with general cleanup at the end of the retreat.
