Mid-winter Renewal Retreat in Wellington, Florida

January 24 - January 27

How often have you made a New Year’s resolution to deepen your meditation practice and strengthen the resolve to live a life with kindness, love and compassion?

Come to Wellington, Florida for a mid-winter renewal retreat. Refresh your mind and practice, and even set positive intentions for the New Year. Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche will be joining us to share profound instructions and maybe even guide us in yoga practice. Spend time in formal sitting meditation practice, instruction, ceremony and quiet time by the pool or mindful walks on the beach.

We will be staying in a beautiful house by a lake, minutes from the beach and lush Florida parks.

Start the new year with a deepening contact with your – body, sensations, perceptions, feelings and mental activity with the aid of mindfulness, insight and the altruistic mind of Bodhicitta.
