Shelter from the Storm | Refuge Retreat

June 8 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm


Saturday, June 8 | 9:30am – 3:00 pm

IN-PERSON and Online for members

Retreat Fees:
Full Day: $25 / $15 for supporting members

We usually try to find stability and protection from unpleasant feelings by surrounding ourselves with people and things that make us feel happy, comfortable and safe. In reality, people and things are impermanent, lacking the power to truly shield us from suffering and problems. Only the Three Jewels – Buddha, Dharma and Sangha – can protect us permanently from the sufferings of this and our countless future lives.

By learning to go for refuge, we can create a feeling of peace, joy and freedom within our heart, which we can then share with others. Each session will include a teaching, chanted prayers and a guided meditation.

Everyone is welcome!
