Eventbrite - Company Time: A Buddhist Retreat for People Working in the Business World (Sept/GGF)    September 6
with Norman Fischer and Mark Lesser

Company Time, begun in 1996, is a gathering of people from diverse professions and occupations, and all realms of private, corporate, government, for-profit and nonprofit organizations. Company Time retreats do not propose easy solutions, but do provide time and tools to address our questions in an atmosphere of trust and confidentiality. Based on the ethical precepts of Mahayana Buddhism, we share insights and ideas on how we can bring a spirit of honesty, integrity and clarity from our spiritual practice into our workplaces and provide support for each other to take up our livelihoods in a wholehearted way.

Our schedule includes light yoga, gentle meditation, teachings, large and small group discussions, and time to enjoy a walk at Green Gulch Farm. Newcomers to Buddhist practice are welcome.

Fees: $85; current members: $76; limited income: $68. Lunch and tea are included. Some partial scholarships available. (About Registration, Scholarships, and Cancellations.)

To Register: Use the Register Online button above for the date you wish to attend. Or call our toll free number (888.743.9362) or our local number (415.475.9362).
