Christian-Buddhist Retreat with Father Kevin Hunt and Jose Ramirez JDPSN
11/12/2016 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Christians and Buddhists can use very similar techniques of contemplative prayer and meditation to help make their spiritual teachings a living part of their daily existence. These retreats emphasize sitting and walking meditation, and include talks and discussion. Each retreat runs from 9:00am to 3:30pm and includes a vegetarian lunch. Beginners are welcome. No prior experience necessary. We schedule Christian-Buddhist Retreats several times throughout the year. Please check our calendar for upcoming events.
