Taking Refuge In What Is True

We spend much of our time planning for a future that never comes or dwelling on the past. The Buddha taught us how we can use each moment for waking up rather than staying caught in our thinking minds. Cultivating and relying on the Three Refuges, our lives take on greater depth and clarity. From this resourced place we start to recognize what to take up and what to give up ¬ and actually do it. We welcome you to join us in deepening our understanding of refuge in these challenging times. The framework of the Precepts, Noble Silence, chanting and simple ceremonies will provide a monastic container to hold and inspire us during this retreat.
