Join us for our November Weekend Meditation Retreat

Saturday, November 16, 7am – Sunday, November 17, 5pm

This two day weekend retreat offers us the opportunity to step aside from the busyness of our daily life allowing us to slow down and ground ourselves. It can help deepen our clarity and perspective and renew our appreciation for the richness of each moment. The retreat is conducted in silence and includes sitting and walking meditation, communal work period, talks by the teacher, and optional private meeting with the teacher. It is open to anyone who has even a small amount of experience with meditation. Meals are provided and lodging at the center is available for those wishing to stay overnight.

A Celebration of Buddha’s Birthday

On Saturday, April 6th, we came together to celebrate spring and the ongoing cycle of becoming. The children decorated the garden with flowers, balloons and streamers and made a pagoda for the baby Buddha statue to stand while we bathed him with sweet tea. We joined in song together and then sang Happy Birthday to everything!

A joyous celebration for everyone.
