Over the course of the weekend, we offer a variety of classes and events that provide a structured yet relaxed stay. On Saturday, spend the morning at our Learn to Meditate in Half a Day workshop. The course is followed by a vegetarian lunch with the community and a quiet afternoon to enjoy the World Peace Café and Bookstore. In the evening we will have our regular chanted prayers which you are welcome to attend free of charge. On Sunday morning, you’ll get the opportunity to receive teachings from our Resident Teacher Gen Samten Kelsang at Prayers for World Peace.
