The purpose of our monthly column is to provide you with
information about retreats and retreating. Cultures throughout
the world and since time immemorial have been creating
special or sacred places for the retreat experience. For
us, White Lotus Retreat Center is such a place, and we
are confident you will find it so as well. In these columns
(a new one will appear the first week of every month),
we will be exploring many ideas and practices related to
the subject of doing retreat as a necessary part of creating
increased balance and skillful means in daily life.
Also, we will examine how we as "modern" people
can incorporate useful strategies for retreating and working
on our own well-being in order that we may increase compassion
for self and others.
We will be sharing our own thoughts about
these subjects, quoting many experts, and would also like to
hear from you. Please feel free to e-mail us with your thoughts,
stories, and experiences!
