Come enjoy a day of meditation and fellowship with your peers in recovery, in the quiet of the wooded temple grounds.
We will begin and end the retreat with a Buddhist recovery meeting, and explore sitting and walking meditation practice with or without instruction. We will also have a group Dhamma discussion in the afternoon and a session of “mindful movement” to soothe our tired muscles!
Meeting and Retreat facilitator
Debra G., Northwest Buddhist Recovery
Meditation and Dhamma discussion facilitator
Ben G., Sumas Mtn. Buddhist Fellowship
