Silent Retreat Day
Join us for a day of silence that will include sitting and walking meditation, chanting, listening to a reading of a koan from the Zen tradition, and tai chi movement. We will have three periods of meditation both in the morning and afternoon. We will begin sitting at 9 AM, so plan on arriving a little early to settle in.
Coffee, tea and refreshments will be provided. Please bring a sack lunch. Feel free to join us for all or part of the day.
A freewill offering will be available.

May 27, 2017 MMG Retreat Day
“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely, or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature, and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be.”
