A RETREAT IN THE PLUM VILLAGE TRADITION - Led by Joanne Friday
Wednesday May 15 2:00pm - Sunday May 19 2:00pm
Camp Aldersgate, N Scituate RI
This 5 day retreat is led by Dharma Teacher, Joanne Friday and held by the RI Community of Mindfulness. This is our 7th year and this is a silent retreat with silent meals, meditation, dharma sharing, and dharma talks led by Joanne. Held in a lovely wooded area around a lake. The vegetarian meals are prepared with love and care.
Note: The location is a bit of a "roughing it" experience with only small mattresses on wooden bunks and shared public bathrooms. Most rooms are shared with three or more people. Many people enjoy camping in their own tents.

TREASURE OF LIFE ALL AGES RETREAT
Wednesday July 24 - Sunday July 28
MorningSun Mindfulness Center, Alstead, NH
Usually in our daily lives we so become busy, stressed, and overwhelmed with work, relationships, and all we think we need to do in order to survive that we miss the miracle and the challenge of true presence. So let us come together to renew and strengthen our capacity to draw nourishment from wonder and beauty. Let us choose to grow our stability and freedom, and take time to nourish and protect the relationships that are truly meaningful and important to our happiness, our joy, and our peace.
A separate children’s program will be available for families with children 5 and older during most of the adult program time. If children younger than 5 are able to flow along with the program in a way that doesn’t disperse the program focus then they can join the program with the supervision of one of their parents or caregivers.
More info and registration HERE. Space is limited.
