Contemplating Peace: A Holy Day Retreat

As we move into the traditional holiday season, this silent insight meditation (Vipassana) retreat will offer time to contemplate the 'holy' or sacred. In addition, it will provide an opportunity to center or compose ourselves in the simplicity of being. Practicing mindfully and compassionately, we will explore the teachings of liberation and freedom.
