The Power of Song. A Day of Mindfulness celebrating our human creativity through music and the creative arts. Facilitated by Dharmacharya Terry Cortes-Vega and musicians Brian Otto Kimmel "Bk", Cornell Kinderknecht and Robin Hackett.

This retreat will help us to connect with each other and our own true nature through mindfulness and creative expression. It is open to all who have meditation experience*. We especially welcome musicians, artists, writers, songwriters, producers, and anyone interested in the creative arts or a fan of the arts.

The day will focus our attention on delight using introspection, group meditation and mindfulness, and creative expression. Activities included will be sitting and walking meditation, talks, sharing, group activities, mini-workshops and an afternoon concert and sharing of our collective experience. The day is topped off in Sangha with Awakening Heart (Community of Mindful Living).

Bring a vegetarian lunch with you, and if you like, extra food to share. There is a refrigerator, microwave, hot water, etc. on site. Tea provided. Please e-mail for accessibility needs. We are wheelchair accessible.

* This retreat is intended for adults with meditation experience who are able to sit in silence for 20 minutes. If you are new to meditation or looking for meditation instruction, please attend one of Dallas Meditation Center's beginner meditation workshops.
