12-Step Buddhist Summer Retreat 2011 8/28-8/30 – Present Moment Awareness

The first SUMMER retreat will be at Breitenbush Hot Springs. We are still having the winter retreats. The 3rd Annual 12-Step Buddhist Winter Retreat will be in the first weekend of February, 2012. The prices for all of our retreats are still very reasonable. 

We have a lot of fun with the annual Winter 12-Step Buddhist Retreats at Breitenbush. We’re just adding our first summer retreat. The dates are August 28th-30th – Sunday evening through Tuesday noon. This retreat begins on the new moon. We will conduct a purification ceremony during our evening practice session on the first night. The focus for this retreat will be Deepening Present Moment Awareness through silent and guided meditations, walking meditations on the hiking trails, daily yoga (optional) and group discussions. We’ll have recommended writing assignments for this retreat as well.

This will be a warm community setting. Anyone is welcome – you don’t have to be Buddhist or be in recovery. If one is struggling with sobriety, however, please contact us before registering.

We’re getting a late start on getting the registrations going. Our apologies. For that reason all deposits are non-refundable. To secure your lodging choice, please include the lodging cost with your retreat fee. Lodging is given on a first come, first fully paid basis. All monies must be in by August 22nd to reserve your spot.

You may register by PayPal by using the button below. Calculate your $99 retreat fee and add your lodging fee. Lodging fees are TOTAL lodging fees for the retreat and are not daily feels. So for example the totals in the table for camping and retreat are $209. That price is per person. If you would rather pay in person or by check, send an email to Tysa Fennern. Tysa will be handling all room assignments. If you have any questions, please contact Darren.

Please see the Breitenbush Hot Springs website for details, directions and restrictions. If you are coming from out of state, please register on their site for ride sharing. We will also have ride sharing through the 12-Step Buddhist Google Group. Register for that under the Resources Tab on https://www.the12stepbuddhist.com
