Jon generally holds 3 or 4 daylong intensives each year around the Bay Area. Look for announcements in our monthly email newsletter or here on this website.

Intensives are affordable and convenient day-long retreats featuring periods of silent sitting, talks by Jon and opportunities to work with him one-on-one.  There are silent breaks for contemplation and unstructured free time for connecting with other attendees.

There is a one-hour lunch break, usually from 1-2pm. Be sure to bring your lunch!

As you become more and more open to the awakened true nature that you are, you become present. When you are present, you are able to find joy in each moment, even if there are problems and challenges that continue to exist on a relative level. Join Jon for a day of surrendering, of letting go, of becoming present, and of finding joy.
