Bhante Rahula, a senior Theravada monk who conducts retreats around the world, will be leading a three-day meditation retreat, May 20-22, 2016, at Mountain View Grange, 1085 N. Main Ave., White Salmon, WA. Space is limited and registrations (required) will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
The retreat will focus on developing mindfulness meditation, with dhamma talks, guiding sitting meditation, walking and standing meditation, and yoga to enhance mindfulness training. It’s open to anyone, from beginning to advanced meditators.
Participants will be responsible for their own meals and lodging. We’ve listed some lodging possibilities below. There are restaurants and grocery stores nearby.
While the teachings are free, we are asking for a non-refundable $25 registration fee to help pay for renting the Grange. This will likely not fully cover the cost, so additional donations also will be welcome.
More Retreat and Registration Information: Please contact Nee Pinit (email@example.com) if you have questions or would like to attend.
