Settle Deeply Into Yourself and Your Life – July 24-27 with MorningSun’s Mindfulness Meditation Retreat
Held in a peaceful and joyous community atmosphere, we will share meditation, mindful meals, group discussions, walking meditations in the forest and listening to teachings of Dharmateachers in the Plum Village tradition. Together we will explore how to to bring mindfulness practice into our daily lives.
The beautiful property also offers a chance to enjoy quiet time in nature, or refresh yourself swimming and canoeing on the pond.
Our annual Ceremony of Compassion will be held on Saturday evening and is open for outside guests to join us, it will include chanting and releasing prayers with floating candles onto Blueberry Pond.
We hold a ceremony to transmit the Five Mindfulness Trainings early on Sunday morning if there are requests to do so.
A children’s program will be available for families with children. It will blend meaningful mindfulness practice for young people with creative projects and summer fun.
