Daylong Retreat for Millenials with Shelly Graf and Gabe Keller Flores: The Sublime Abidings
Saturday, March 14, 2020 9:00am – 6:00pm
Please join us for this daylong retreat for millenials. We will be covering the four sublime abidings (brahma-viharas) of goodwill, compassion, appreciative joy, and equanimity.
We consider millenials to be people who have come/are coming of age in the 21st century.
We will be offering guided meditations, dharma talks, and times for discussion, as well as silent meditation periods. Please bring a bag lunch.

They are a staff dharma teacher, like Mark Nunberg, the Guiding Teacher. Currently they teach a variety of programs at the center including co-leading residential retreats with Mark Nunberg and Wynn Fricke. Shelly’s administrative role includes partnering with the Guiding Teacher to develop and clarify the center’s vision, policies, and priorities. Professionally, Shelly has been a clinician and administrator in the Social Work and mental health fields since 2005. They have a special interest in waking up to whiteness as part of this total path of awakening. Whatever Shelly’s role may be, they will always be a grateful student of Buddhist Practice first.
