8:30-10:10 AM Regular Sunday Morning Buddhist Meditation Schedule
We'll need 6 people to commit to participate through RSVP by Wednesday, January 25, 2017
We will go over the details of the schedule and assign retreat positions and responsibilities at the orientation
Cost is $40.00.
We will provide hot coffee and tea throughout the day. Participants are required to bring their choice of prepared foods for breakfast and lunch. There is a microwave for heating foods.
Please, bring an art or hand craft project to color, draw, paint, sew, knit, weave, etc. during the art/hand craft period. Though we highly value creative writing and writing in general, because one point of our commitment to silence during the retreat is to help us taste the peace available to us as the discursive mind quiets, creative writing or journaling during the art/craft period is discouraged.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, 1/25/17. If you have questions before the orientation on 1/27/17, email them to email@example.com.
Happy Holidays, Peace! Love! Health! Safety! Joy! to you, your family, and everyone!
