Wisdom of the Collective Heart: A Half-Day Retreat

Wisdom of the Collective Heart: A Half-Day Retreat
with Daniella Salzman and Adam Moskowitz 

Sunday, February 26th  9:30 am – 1:30 pm
In person at Chochmat HaLev
2215 Prince St. Berkeley, CA 94705

This retreat invites us to return to our moment-to-moment human experience, to welcome the transformative energy of non-doing into our lives. We let go of the line between heart and mind and our wholeness becomes a safe haven for the world.  

Through guided meditation, silence, gentle movement, teachings, and group reflection, we will drop into the space of loving awareness and allow innate wisdom to open us to a wider view of who we are and what is possible together.

Daniella Salzman and Adam Moskowitz are grateful to co-lead this retreat, with inspiration from many teachers, wisdom paths, and communities.
