Spiritual refuge means finding inner protection from our problems and fear by developing special insights and realizations. On this retreat we have a perfect opportunity to discover and deepen our experience of refuge by connecting with Buddha’s blessings and receiving the encouragement of spiritual friends. Then we can quickly and easily make progress on the path to liberation and enlightenment.
During retreat we temporarily withdraw from our usual routines and activities, and learn how to relax and develop peaceful, positive minds through meditation.
