Great meditation teachers say that the most essential part of practice is to do it every single day. Most of us find that to be very difficult. There’s no secret: you just have to do it. But with our lives so full of busyness and stress, how can we get motivated to practice? This retreat will teach you how to sit even when you don’t want to or feel as if you don’t have time to. It’s not about finding the magic motivator. It’s about developing and sustaining the habit of practice.
