9:00 AM – 4:00 PM: Meditation Retreat
This is normally held on the 4th Saturday of each month. Please see newsletter.
There are two types of meditation retreats, one structured and one unstructured. The structured retreats, held twice a quarter, include group practice of the Energization Exercises, and extended meditations. Intermission is at 1:00 PM. If you are unable to attend the entire day, you may join us for part of the day. Please enter the chapel only during periods of chanting, reading, or during the afternoon break from 1:00 to 1:30. Please be mindful of not disturbing others during meditation. The unstructured retreat, held once a quarter, begins at 8:00 AM and continues to 8:00 PM. There are no readings or periods of chanting, only meditations. Devotees are free to come and go during this period, entering and leaving the chapel as quietly as possible. The library in the Sunday school building is open for those who would like to combine inspirational reading with their meditation.
