Purpose of the program
This retreat is intended to be time for people from all approaches to enjoy meditation and to learn a bit more about alternatives from what each of us is used to. Diverse experience and engaging in a diverse community can only be to the good! Along with heaps of actual practice and purposeful exchange between and with established teachers and trainers. We encourage attendance from entry level to master level.
