In the fast paced culture of modern life we are often acting out of habitual and reacitve mind states instead of our most deeply held values and beliefs. These habitual responses lead to discontent and stress. This course will offer step-by-step guidance on how to reawaken mindful presence and compassion to live an intentional life leading to a deeper sense of personal power, freedom and ease. The course is offered on dana. No registration necessary. Email erin@erinselover.com with questions.





Mindfulness Yoga & Meditation Training Program, Retreat One

Anne Cushman, Will Kabat-Zinn, Pascal Auclair, Erin Selover

Wednesday, October 15 - Friday, October 24

Spirit Rock Meditation Center


This first 10-day retreat of the 18 month training combines vipassana meditation, asana, pranayama, private interviews, and dharma and yoga talks. The daily yoga and meditation practices will serve as vehicles for training and embodying core dharma principles of compassion, joy, wisdom and kindness. There are still a few spaces left in this training which I highly recommend. 

Intimacy with Life

Tara Brach, Pat Coffey, Jonathan Foust and Anam Thubten

Friday, October 24 - Friday October 31

Pearlstone Retreat Center


"Enlighenment is intimacy with all things," teaches Zen Master Dogen. While we long for this intimacy, we are conditioned to avoid the vulnerablity and fear that an intimate presence can arouse. This retreat will offer meditative training to cultivate the capacity to be intimate with our sensations of aliveness, presence and freedom. I will be assisting this retreat and offering group and individual interviews. 




Feeding Your Demons Daylong

Erin Selover

Saturday, December 6; 9 - 4:30

Spirit Rock Meditation Center


This is a silent daylong where students will learn how to integrate the Feeding Your Demons practice, developed by Lama Tsultrim Allione, into their mindfulness practice. Feeding Your Demons is a tranformative tool used to befriend difficult aspects of our experience and utilize the energy for freedom and well-bing. We will alternate between periods of vipassana meditation, demon feeding practice and question and answers.
