Join a GMC event to gain insight and meditate with gifted peers around the world . . . from wherever you are.
A secular variation on the traditional Zen sesshin – a period of intensive meditation which literally means "touching the heart-mind" – gifted sesshins + retreats will be opportunities for gifted adults with meditation experience to come together for extended periods of gifted-specific practice and community with seasoned facilitators and peers.
Many gifted adults comment that they have been disappointed with non-gifted mindfulness programs and communities. The lack of mirroring and understanding of common gifted challenges and needs can fall short of what gifted people need – and desire – for their personal and relational growth. Our gifted sesshins + retreats provide an inclusive and compassionate space for gifted people to deepen their growth via mindfulness practice, together – in relationship with one another.
As we establish our community, our intention is to hold 3 gifted sesshins each year. We're hoping to offer our first one in January 2020. If you are interested in becoming a GMC member to sustain your practice and connect with like-minds and -hearts, you are welcome to join us!
