Day Retreats

Usually the third Saturday of each month, 10am to 4pm.

These monthly day retreats are a great opportunity to experience the benefits of retreat without leaving the city. Each month, through meditation, reflection and discussion, we will explore a different aspect of practice and see for ourselves how it relates to living well today. They are open to anyone interested in the topics, and no particular experience is required, though if you haven't meditated before you might consider taking one of our introductory classes.

Silent Meditation Day June 25th, led by Mokshasi

You are invited to join us at the SFBC for a very simple, silent day of meditation practice.  You can join for the whole day or any portion of it - just please be sure to arrive during a break, as we will be unable to let you in otherwise. 

Meditations will be unguided, just bells, and the opportunity to sit together in our lovely shrine room. 

As for all our in person events we ask that you check the requirements here before attending. Thank you.
