Renewing Our Lives, Deepening Our Practice, January 24-26th, 2014

A dedicated personal meditation practice serves as the foundation of ever-deepening understanding of ourselves and the nature of our joy & suffering. This retreat offers an opportunity to start the new year consciously watering positive seeds within ourselves.
