About the Event

The Buddha’s wisdom is timeless. This weekend is your time….to slow down, to unplug, to get quiet, to meditate…to walk quietly and to listen to insightful stories about the Buddha and his feel into the Dharma… body, mind and heart. Buddha means to “awake”. He said that he taught what
worked for him and invited others to try it for themselves. Consider what a weekend of the Buddha’s wisdom may bring to you…deeply listening to these ancient stories…waking up yourself to a simpler way of being…a middle path, a peaceful mind and a kind heart. We will practice noble silence for the
weekend with periods of dialogue and co-listening.
