Finding Refuge in Wisdom and Compassion: Annual Refuge Retreat

What is Buddhist Refuge?

Buddhist faith means principally faith in Buddha Shakyamuni, the founder of the Buddhist religion.  Practitioners of Buddhism practice the teachings, or Dharma, taught by Buddha, and rely upon the fellowship of the Buddhist community for support, called the Sangha.  Together, Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha are called the “Three Jewels” of Buddhism.

During this unique drop-in retreat, practitioners have time to study refuge, learn the refuge prayer, and meditate during each session.  Sessions generally last from 1.5 to 2 hours and include the chanted prayers called “Essence of Good Fortune.”

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
