The Silent Meditation Retreat has been postponed - future date is TBD

Silent Day Meditation Retreat

Saturday, October 14th | 8:30am-3:30pm

Our everyday lives are busy and full of activity, sensory stimuli, and problems. We can take a much needed spiritual break from all of these with a day of silent meditation retreat. Everyday we exhaust ourself searching for our happiness in external objects, outside our mind. But no matter how long or hard we search, we will never find them there. This is because happiness depends upon a peaceful mind. We can develop a peaceful mind through the practice of meditation. In the setting of this silent day retreat, we have a wonderful opportunity to take a break from our daily distractions, busy, unhappy minds and settle into quiet meditation and reflection. The day begins with a short orientation on how to engage in silent retreat. Meditations are self-guided.

Everyone is welcome.

No need for any special clothing or equipment. No previous experience is required. You can sit on a chair or on a meditation cushion.
