About the Retreat
Retreats are a chance to take a break from our routine and busy-ness, to rest in the present moment. With our minds quiet, we discover how to be happy right now. During this five night retreat at Prindle Pond, we will practice mindfulness in the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. Through mindful sitting, walking, eating and breathing, we will strengthen our ability to come into the present moment. We will nourish our natural capacity for healing and allow our seeds of peace and happiness to bloom. The retreat’s atmosphere is one of togetherness, peace and quiet joy.
