PEACE VILLAGE LEARNING & RETREAT CENTER -- EXPERIENCE THE TRANQUILITY

Enjoy a weekend retreat on a wide variety of topics in beautiful Upstate New York, only one hour from Albany! Also enjoy a taste by attending a meditation, or class in Albany. Meet some of the retreat facilitators as they present a workshop based on an upcoming retreat.

At Peace Village, some enjoy the opportunity for solitude, for silent walks through the woods, and group interaction with like-minded seekers. Others find answers to questions about spiritual knowledge, spiritual power, and the deep experience of meditation. Many have expressed surprise at the complete shift in awareness that can take place in just a few days.

* Discover new life tools through self-work and group work in interactive sessions.
* Share with like-minded seekers.
* Take time for quiet reflection, relaxation, walks, and exploration of the beautiful grounds.

The programs in Albany are conducted by the same staff as Peace Village. Come to either and both to learn how to tap into your inner peace, build self-esteem, overcome anger and attachment and much more.
