Glimpsing the Nature of Mind: Meditation Retreat in Upstate New York with Ven. Amy Miller

We are delighted to announce our third annual retreat with Ven. Amy Miller at Garrison Institute. The nature of mind will be a central theme during this retreat, and, as in previous years, we will experience the integrative approach that has made these retreats so successful: alternating concentration (shiné) and analytical meditations, keeping silence during the breaks. This retreat will benefit both relatively new Buddhists and more experienced practitioners.

Friday, April 14 to Sunday, April 16
at Garrison Institute
