Dates + Sign Up:

Due to the passing of my root teacher, Ruth Denison, I have taken on the responsibility for continuing her Dhamma Dena Desert Vipassana Center in the Mojave Desert (Joshua Tree). I currently teach two 10-day retreats each year, as well as shouldering much of the center's administration and governance. As a result, my DharmaCreek kayak retreats are currently suspended, though I am will happily lead a group (minimum 3), upon request. If you would like to enjoy Mindfulness in Nature in the awesome Mojave Desert, please consider attending one of my retreats there: 

Women's 10-day Spring Retreat, April 27 - May 6, 2018

Fall Retreat, October 26 - November 4, 2018
