Registration for this retreat is closed. If you have any questions or needs, please call Shelli at410-243-3837

Snow date: Jan 31-Feb 3.
This retreat, over the MLK Jr. holiday weekend, will help us to deeply relax and recharge our spiritual batteries. It is suitable for everyone from beginners to those who are more experienced. For beginners, you will learn something that could change your life, and for those with more experience, you will have the opportunity to deepen your understanding and experience of meditation.

Buddha taught that the mind has the power to create all pleasant and unpleasant objects. Normally we say, “I created such and such,” or “He/she/they created such and such.” But the actual creator of everything is the mind — because everything is a mere imputation by mind. Happiness and suffering are states of mind, and so their main causes cannot be found outside the mind. If we want to be truly happy and free from suffering, we must learn how to control our mind. —Excerpt From Modern Buddhism 1: Sutra, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. 

We will remain silent in the mornings and then get to know each other at lunch and later in the day as we take walks on the beach and enjoy the ocean air.

Online registration (with 50% deposit) required by Jan 10th at the latest. Sign up now, as this is a popular retreat and space is limited!* Please see refund policy on registration page.
