Marty Kibiloski and Michael Sandrock“Running with the Buddha Within” brings together Western running knowledge and Eastern insight meditation and yoga practices to look at the reasons so many of us “overtrain” in running and in life.

It is based on the work of comparative mythologist Joseph Campbell and on principles first formulated by the Buddha 2,500 years ago and codified in marathoner Sakyong Mipham’s “Running with the Mind of Meditation.” For more information please contact Marty Kibiloski: 303-596-5959 or Marty.Kibiloski@gmail.com
The Happiness of the Buddha
With Barry Gillespie
The Buddha and his teachings are often thought of as depressing. All that talk about suffering! Actually the Buddha spent most of his time talking about happiness, how we can bring more joy into our own lives and into the lives of everyone around us. The Buddha was called "The Happy One" for good reason. On this retreat we will explore what the Buddha taught about happiness and how we can directly apply these teaching to our practice.
