Sravasti Abbey, a Buddhist monastery in Newport, WA, invites young adults aged 18 to 29 to explore the Buddha’s teachings within our American culture. No meditation experience is necessary, just an open and curious mind/heart.
The course includes meditation instructions and practice, daily teachings and Dharma discussions with Ven. Thubten Chodron, and working outdoors in beautiful gardens, meadows, and woodlands in northeastern Washington.
Meet like-minded friends who question pop cultural values and want to find purpose and meaning in their lives.
Apply by completing the long application form (https://sravastiabbey.org/register). All programs are offered on a donation basis. A donation and registration form are requested to reserve your place for the retreat.
Arrive by 3:00 p.m. on Friday, June 8. The program ends after lunch the following Friday, June 15.
