Meditation is a core part of all Buddhist practice and serves to calm the mind, increase our physical and mental wellbeing, and to see things as they really are.  All this leads to a life of compassion towards ourselves and to others.  Imagine a world in which all are guided by compassion.  This is a step you can take towards that end.  

This retreat is open to all.  You do not have to “be a Buddhist” to benefit from meditation.  Please do consider coming.
