With George Wiegand
April 8, 2023
Join us at 9:30 on the second Saturday of each month for meditation instruction and a delicious vegetarian lunch.
We have created a series of weekend day-retreats for those who can’t spare an entire weekend to get away. It is also a wonderful time to bring a friend to experience Ratna Ling. We are offering a day of respite on our sacred land, when you can leave busyness behind and return home renewed.

March 11th – Contemplation – Methods from the Tibetan tradition to support your daily meditation practice.
