July 4th Weekend Dyad Meditation Retreat, led by Win Morgan and Osha Reader
July 5th — July 8th, 2018
Origin in the High Sierra, CA
Win Morgan Osha Reader

Dear Friends,

Win and Osha invite you to join us for a July 5 - 8 Dyad Meditation Retreat at Origin in the High Sierra. It will begin Thursday evening, July 5th, and will end with dinner on Sunday, July 8th. You're welcome to stay over until Monday.

This July 4th weekend marks the 50th anniversary of the Enlightenment Intensive, created in 1968 by Charles and Ava Berner. The Dyad Meditation Retreat, based on the Enlightenment Intensive, is an advanced form that combines the power and intimacy of the dyad with the depth of sitting and walking contemplation. We encourage the cultivation of moment to moment awareness while listening, speaking, and during the various activities of the day. You can read more about the EI process at http://highsierra.org/ei.html

Win is a clinical psychologist with a private practice in Corte Madera, CA. He has a long-standing Buddhist meditation and study practice and trained with Edrid and Osha to lead Intensives. Win is known and loved for his intelligence, his humor, and his big heart. 

Osha trained with Charles Berner in the late 60s and has been leading Enlightenment Intensives, Love Intensives, and Dyad Meditation Retreats for over 40 years. Win and Osha have sat many vipassana retreats over several decades and have been teaching together since 2009.

The cost for the retreat is $375. Everyone is welcome and partial work trades are available. You can reserve a place, sponsor someone, or make a fully tax-deductible donation to Origin at PayPal  https://www.paypal.me/originintensives, or mail a check to Origin, 40600 Hwy 49, Calpine CA 96124.

Tuition will be on a sliding scale from $350 to $650, which includes your lodging, bedding and towels, delicious vegetarian meals, and the Intensive. Please plan to pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This will allow others who need to pay less, the opportunity to attend.
