Learn about our retreat center project!

The Northeast Retreat Center
Modern self confident people value real experience over philosophical ideals. Buddha’s teachings offer practical, inspiring, and useful tools for transforming even our greatest disturbances into wisdom by pointing directly at our own enlightened nature. By applying the teachings correctly one can take advantage of every situation, even their bustling city lifestyle, to lead them down the path of freedom and enlightenment.

All events are offered free of charge unless otherwise noted. No prior knowledge of Buddhism is required and there are NO prerequisites for any center event.
