Saturdays at Ratna Ling – An April Day Retreat

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.

February 11th – Inspiration – Awakening to the benefits of developing a daily meditation practice.

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

April 8th  – Breath – Mindfulness of breath leads to calmness and clarity

May 13th – Compassion – As our calmness and clarity grows our compassion grows.
