Retreat Detailed Program:

We welcome families, couples and individuals of all ages to join us during this joyful time of living mindfully together.  The “Opening the Door of Your Heart” retreat is a time to be nourished by deep yet accessible teachings, the harmony and splendor of the fall countryside and the joy of community.  We will use the practices of mindfulness to touch the miracles of life in the midst of the mundane. The retreat includes daily teachings and practices on mindfulness, walking meditation, sitting meditation and eating meditation. We will also have the chance to strengthen our capacities for deep listening and loving speech through the practices of Deep Relaxation, Touching of the Earth, Beginning Anew, and Dharma Sharing.

The Magnolia Grove Monks and Nuns will offer programs for all backgrounds and ages  including, children (ages 6-12) and teens (ages 13-17).  The retreat is open to all, including beginners, those who have previously attended retreats, and families with children. 

This is an opportunity to come together as a spiritual family and cultivate togetherness.  Also, to refresh our relationships with not only our families, but also our relationship with Mother Earth and our ancestors.  It is a wonderful retreat for those new to mindfulness practice in the Plum Village tradition, as well as for anyone interested in mindful community life. We welcome the participation of people from all backgrounds. We are committed to fostering a practice environment where all may touch the Dharma and find healing, transformation and nourishment.

The retreat will be held at Fort Flagler State Park 

about 2 hours driving from Seattle.  The park rests 

on a beautiful beach overlooking Puget Sound, with 

spectacular views of Olympic Peninsula and
