Get away for the weekend or just for the day to a lakeside meditation retreat at picturesque Dreher Island State Park. In between meditation sessions, sit by the lake, chat with friends, or hike in the park's many woodland trails. You'll definitely return to your weekly routine feeling refreshed and peaceful.

Develop a warm and peaceful heart

We all have the potential to love others unconditionally. We may even love a few people — such as our children or our parents — with "no strings attached". But in most of our relationships, our good heart fluctuates with the circumstances; sometimes we are able to generate a mind of love, while at other times we fall into well-worn mental patterns of irritation, annoyance, or even indifference.

From a Buddhist point of view, developing a warm and peaceful heart towards all living beings is an essential step in our personal spiritual development. During this weekend retreat at Dreher Island State Park, we'll learn special meditations to open and improve our good heart. As the weekend progresses, we will each see for ourselves how powerful and blissful a heart filled with loving-kindness really is.

Session times:

Friday – 7:45pm
Saturday – 8am, 11am, 4:30pm, and 7pm
Sunday – 8am, 9:30am
