Spring Mountain Retreat 2017

Southern Dharma Retreat Center Led by Rev. WonGong So

April 4 (Tuesday) - April 9 (Sunday) 

IN NATURE, OUR TRUE NATURE

Come and experience truth— the truth of our own nature!

This retreat offers opportunities to practice meditation through movement and rest. Our aim in meditation is to experience the truth of our own nature. Retreatants will observe noble silence with sitting, Qi-gong movement, journaling, and dharma contemplation. The retreat also includes chanting, as well as group and individual teaching. Because of WonBuddhism’s belief in the interconnectedness of all things, we will practice outside as weather permits. May we harmonize and balance the energy of our body and mind, cultivate a calm awareness, and let the light of our true nature shine!

Spaces are limited. Please register NOW!

For further information and registration, visit the Southern Dharma Retreat website.
