Half Day Retreat Hosted by Mark & Veletta

  • Nov 3, 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.

    FYI, Great Zen Master Seung Sahn's linage monk Hyon Gak is coming to Jun Dung Sa buddhist temple at 900 Beaver Ruin Rd. Lilburn, GA this Sunday. English service is scheduled at 3pm, mainly targeting young adults, but I would expect the teaching would be exceptional. Let me know if you have any question.

    More dharma talks on Bodhidharma and Diamond Sutra are available on Youtube.
