Response to COVID-19

 

Dear Sangha,

Like many of you, we are closely monitoring the evolution of the overall impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19). With great regret, True North Insight's Board of Directors has decided to cancel all scheduled retreats until the end of the year. The safety and health of our participants, teachers, and managers are our top priority. This decision reflects a careful examination of the current situation, and our desire to act responsibly. We owe it to one another to take all practical measures to minimize the risk of infection. We believe this decision to cancel is the most prudent, compassionate, and wise, given the circumstances. We will continue to monitor the progression of the outbreak, and if further cancellations occur, we will notify you as soon as possible.

In addition, our weekly sittings are cancelled until further notice.

We are now offering online insight meditation retreats and daily sittings.

Due to these challenging times, organizations like ours are going to be affected financially, and especially our teachers, who depend on dana for their livelihood. If you are in a position to help support us and our teachers, we would be very grateful. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

This global pandemic which touches the lives of each one of us is a reminder of our profound interconnectedness with all beings, and our common relationship to Earth. TNI holds our dear Sangha with lovingkindness and extends compassion to all who are suffering. We are grateful for our precious friendship in the Dharma and look forward to being in your presence once again.

Warmest wishes,

Daryl Lynn Ross, Co-Founder of True North Insight
