SEPTEMBER COMMUNITY RETREAT

Dates: September 1-7 , 2019

Starting Time: 8am SLT each day.

The Bellisseria Buddhist Center will be holding a retreat on these dates starting each morning at the center. This is a special community event with focus on well being, and studies that help in personal growth, community growth, as well as health and wellness.

Members, students, and Secondlife members should gather each morning they can attend at the center at 8am SLT (PT), 10am CT.

Days will begin with a meet and greet, then a dharma or wellness discussion, meditation, followed by a lunch break.

We will then begin a community walking meditation in various locations on bellesseria, as well as visiting other spots for the community. This includes parks, pool areas, cafe’s , and centers.

I hope to see you all.
