4/3/2020 - Online Events: Mon/Thurs Meditation on Zoom

Monday and Thursday meditation will now be held online using Zoom led by Bhante Sutadhara.

Please be sure to install zoom on your device at least 15 minutes before meeting. For computers: https://zoom.us/signup, for devices use the appropriate install tool (AppStore, PlayStore, etc.)

The free version of Zoom limits meetings to 40 minutes which is why we have scheduled two separate meetings. They will use the same meeting ID but you will have to join each meeting separately. We have scheduled them with a 5 minute break between the first and the second. Click the links below to join the meetings.

2014 Annual Retreat with Bhante Rahula

Bhante-Buddha

Bhante Rahula

For the second year in a row the annual retreat will be held on the beautiful, 26 acre La Casa de Maria retreat and conference center located in the hills of Montecito, California. Adjacent to Santa Barbara, La Casa de Maria offers a park like setting, comfortable rooms and gourmet-quality buffets that you are sure to enjoy. The retreat will begin just before dinner on Friday, December 5 and, for residential participants, will extend until late afternoon on Sunday, December 7th.

This will be the fourth year, our meditations will be directed by Bhante Yogavacara Rahula. Bhante Rahula has lived as a Buddhist monk for over 40 years he is an author and long-time meditation instructor. Born and raised in Southern California, Bhante Rahula received his training as a Buddhist monk in India and Sri Lanka where he lived for many years prior to returning to the U.S. For decades he has led in the training of new monks and has held teaching and leadership roles in his monastic community.

A particular area of interest for Bhante is the integration of light yoga and more traditional sitting and walking meditation. His humor, simplicity and dedication will be apparent when you listen to his talks and when he answers your questions.

Early registration is currently underway. To obtain the lowest rate you must reserve by October 20th. You will find the rates listed below.
