Dear Friends! You are all invited to the first ever meditation retreat at the Western Retreat Center over the weekend of October 23–25.
We plan to meet on Friday for a BBQ, set up all our tents, have a group meditation on the 16th Karmapa, and be social. Saturday will begin with a group meditation and individual practice, followed by work projects on the land. After lunch we'll meditate, get updated on the latest WRC developments, walk the land, and enjoy the company of friends. Another meditation session will follow dinner, along with a campfire and a good time. We'll have an individual practice session on Sunday morning, breakfast, and a group meditation on the 16th Karmapa to wrap things up. Throughout the weekend we'll have a couple of short inspirational talks by Simone Peters. We plan on ending the program around noon to give people enough time to drive or fly back home.
We'll all be camping, there are no utilities except for water, so please bring:Tents and sleeping bags, plates, caps, utensils, flashlight, sunscreen/toiletries, warm hats/jackets for the evenings, drinking water, etc.
The cost of the retreat is $60 [all meals are included]. To contribute in any way [setting up the site early on Friday, cooking, organizing the work projects, taking pictures to document our event] or to register please email Morgan at email@example.com. We ask that you register by October 17th so we can make sure to have enough food and supplies for everyone. Let us know about any special requirements [dietary or otherwise] so we can plan for it.
We look forward to seeing everyone! Children Welcome!
