What a wonderful weekend retreat.
Gathered amid ancient hills and valleys,
To study and meditate on ancient learnings.
Nature is always present with whispering winds,
And falling leaves and changing skies,
Bringing awareness of the ever changing parts of our lives.
The silent surroundings helping us understand,
The gentle teachings showing us a pathway,
To finding an awareness that happiness and peace,
Are always present in each of us.
