Happy indeed we live, we for whom there are no possessions. Feeders on rapture shall we be, like the gods of Brilliant Light. – The Buddha
A retreat is a rare chance to live in a way far removed from television, tube stations, stress and city strife. It is an opportunity to relax, as well as to find inspiration and challenge yourself. For many, it is a life-changing experience they never forget. You can deepen your meditation, cultivate mindfulness, and learn about Buddhism. A retreat is also a good way to meet new friends.
