Spring Retreat at Little Portion Retreat Center

We will be having a one-day retreat on Sunday, April 28th, from 9am-4pm, at Little Portion Retreat Center, 645 S Assisi Way, Republic, MO.  You can find a map HERE.

We will begin our day with meditation and a short Dhamma talk by Holly, followed by an optional chanting session in English led by David.  The rest of the day will be spent in self-paced practice of sitting and walking meditation on the grounds of the retreat center.  Please bring a brown bag lunch--a refrigerator and microwave are available for our use.  Stay for the whole day or for the morning, whichever is most convenient for you.  The sisters at the retreat center suggest a donation of $15 per person for the use of the center.

Please park in the lot on the left at the end of the drive.  You are welcome to bring your own cushions or benches, but a few cushions and two benches will be available if you need them.
