Half Day Retreat Hosted by Mark & Veletta

  • Sep 15, 2013 · 9:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

A period of intensive insight meditation practice has a long history of helping individuals foster wisdom, compassion, equanimity and peace. A retreat with others may also energize and deepen mindfulness, as well as help to strengthen a sense of sangha (community of spiritual friends).

With these things in mind, we would like to, whenever possible, provide a free monthly half day meditation retreat for those wishing to deepen their mindfulness practice. The location is a private residence in an ideal setting for meditation and a great place to enjoy the beauty of the North Georgia mountains. All you need to bring is a cushion or bench and the willingness to unplug from your hectic life for a few hours.
Directions to the retreat site and meeting agenda are below.

    Thanks to Kyle from The Cartersville Mediation Group, I believe your retreat is exactly what I've been looking for and need at this time of my journey. I look forward to meeting you.

    Alas, I will still be in California then, don't return until the following day. Wish me luck with my month-long adventure 'camping' at primitive Aranya Bodhi in the redwoods near Jenner. I'll see y'all next time.
