Buddhist and Christian Meditation:

Sunday, July 26, 2009 through Friday July 31st

Our five-day meditation retreat offers participants an opportunity to experience and integrate Buddhist and Christian contemplative practices, through brief instruction, extended periods of silent practice, and ample time for unstructured quiet and solitude.

The complementary practices of two great spiritual traditions weave an experience of great deepening and opening; a rich encounter with what is real, authentic, and nurturing. This retreat is ideal for those who wish to go deeper into the stillness, to receive some introductory instruction in meditation and contemplative practice across traditions, and to experience directly the benefits of meditation and prayer away from the interruptions of everyday life.
