Summer Monastic Retreat – Harmony in our home, Joy in the world

June 29-30 at the Goodman Community Center in Madison WI

This retreat will be led by four monastics from Blue Cliff Monastery – two Brothers and two Sisters. We will have the opportunity to pause, be held in community, and look deeply at how we can develop more understanding so that we can manifest more compassion and love in ourselves, our families and the whole world. The retreat format will be similar to last year, featuring instruction and practice in sitting, walking, and eating meditation; dharma talks by monastic teachers; deep relaxation; and question and response time. Dharma discussion opportunities will be added this year, as well as opportunities for OI and OI aspirants to meet with the monastics. There will also be a concurrent, day-long children’s program on Sunday.
