Earth Warriors: Young Adult Retreat

with Leslie Gossett

August 3 - 11

The time of young adulthood is so powerful and also so difficult. We hold questions such as "Who am I?" "How do I want to be in the world?" "What is my purpose?" "Which path is my path forward?" "How do I create a fulfilling livelihood?" "How do I navigate relationships and growing responsibilities?" These questions and more are asking us to hold them with curiosity, grace, and bravery.


The Shambhala Tradition and our community as a whole has so much to offer to support and hold these questions. Together, we can allow space to ask, to look, to receive, and to help each other forward. Creating a strong community, understanding ourselves in deeper ways, and really connecting with our hearts aspiration are powerful tools that help us move through this time of our life with greater ease and trust. We will explore meditation practice, work with Shambhala and Buddhist teachings, work with our own sense of embodiment through movement and other activities, and also have time to discuss and explore with each other, drawing out our own wisdom.
