Exploring the Buddhist Path – a Week Long Practice Intensive

With Tim Albert and Sally Albert

November 24 - 30, 2019

The Buddhist path is a systematic and accessible method for waking up to our true nature. Join us for a week of meditation and contemplation as we delve into this authentic, practical wisdom tradition.

This program is open to everyone. Meditation instruction will be available. There will be dharma talks most mornings and discussion opportunities in the afternoon.

There have been changes since this program was originally posted here. This is not a full retreat, people are welcome to join for a portion of the time. To get the most benefit from partial attendance, we recommend that you block out a schedule for your attendance and commit to it.

Lunch is NOT included in the program.
