The retreat focused on the theme Making Effort Easier. It was Skooglund’s intent to “offer up some fresh perspectives and practices that will help effort make more sense, and seem more valuable — which can make effort much easier!”
Our time together included guided meditation, dharma talk & questions, walking meditation, sitting mediation, and mindful sharing.
After the retreat Carl shared with us a very useful resource — the detailed notes he used for his dharma talk on “Right Effort” which you can view here.
