These retreats emphasize sitting and walking meditation, and include talks and discussion. Each retreat runs from 9:00am to 4:00pm and includes a vegetarian lunch. Beginners are welcome. No prior experience necessary.

      Hi Lisa, Thank you for your question. We don’t know when the next Christian / Buddhist retreat will be. It’s been a couple of years since the last one so I wouldn’t expect them to happen more than once a year.
