    This week:  "Meditation Retreat" - what does that mean?   
    When we go on a meditation retreat are we pulling back, trying to find that calm place or, preparing ourselves to step out and engage more fully with our world?
           
     
    Whether you’re a long-time meditator or wanting to explore mindfulness practice for the first time, you’ll find friendly people and interesting topics to discuss and contemplate.
