Pat Coffey and I have taught several retreats together through Insight Meditation Community of Washington, the Meditation Teacher Training Institute, and I have taught the Mindful of Race training program to his leadership sangha eam and throughout the Charlottesville community as a bridging separation initiative.

Pat and I will offer a long-weekend retreat in Charlottesville, VA, sponsored by Insight Meditation Community of Charlottesville.

This is sure to be an insightful and enjoyable weekend.

More details to follow.

Down-to-earth, real-world, practical dharma is the hallmark of his teaching.
