Online Daylong Retreat

led by Carol Blotter

Let Your Life Be Your Meditation

Saturday October 24

8:15 AM-5:00 PM

Show Me Dharma is pleased to offer this daylong retreat with Carol Blotter on October 24. This will be the fourth time Carol has offered a retreat for Show Me Dharma. Those of us who have sat with Carol have found her to be an inspired and compassionate teacher whose instructions on the dharma are consistently clear and helpful to deepen our practices.

Because of the COVID pandemic, the retreat will be offered on Zoom. Instructions for the use of Zoom will be provided as we proceed with preparations. Please note: the process is actually easier than it might seem at first!!

There will be sitting and walking meditation periods, a dharma talk, opportunities for Q&A, and group practice conferences with Carol.

We invite you to consider this wonderful opportunity to deepen your practice.

Cost: This retreat is offered on a dana (voluntary donation) basis. We request that you send a donation that is affordable and feels suitable in order to reserve your space. Donations can be sent to Show Me Dharma via Venmo or Paypal, or by sending a check payable to Show Me Dharma to: Valerie Bader, 104 Westwood, Columbia, MO 65203. On the day of the retreat, there will also be opportunities to offer dana for Carol.
