Upcoming retreat: As a Wave, As Water: Learning to Love and Let Go, with Joy Stability and Freedom. The Buddha's teaching on Knowing a Better Way to Catch a Snake will be the topic of study. On retreat we enjoy sitting, walking, eating and working together in mindfulness. There will be periods of meditation, Dharma talks, Dharma study groups, sutra services, singing, movement activities and walking meditation on the beautiful grounds of the Nazareth Retreat Center. The retreat will be held primarily in Noble Silence to support our practice. This retreat is a highly beneficial opportunity to deepen our practice as a community. There is both a residential option and a commuter option for attending the retreat. We ask that commuters adhere to the full schedule for the retreat by arriving for the morning meditation and staying through the end of the evening.
