Treasure of Life All Ages Retreat

July 29 @ 5:00 pm - August 2 @ 2:00 pm

The Treasure of Life

REGISTRATION OPENS FEBRUARY 1st 2020

Usually in our daily lives we so become busy, stressed, and overwhelmed with work, relationships, and all we think we need to do in order to survive that we miss the miracle and the challenge of true presence. So let us come together to renew and strengthen our capacity to draw nourishment from wonder and beauty. Let us choose to grow our stability and freedom, and take time to nourish and protect the relationships that are truly meaningful and important to our happiness, our joy, and our peace.

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 on mindfulness 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 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.

Children’s Program

A separate children’s program will be available for families with children 5 and older during most of the adult program time.  If children younger than 5 are able to flow along with the program in a way that doesn’t disperse the program focus then they can join the program with the supervision of one of their parents or caregivers. There is also some activity time that is specifically designed for the whole community so adults and children of all ages can enjoy practicing together.  In between program time parents are responsible for their children. The program will blend meaningful mindfulness practice and time in nature with games, creative projects and summer fun.

Logistics
