Trout Lake Abbey Retreat

August 30 @ 4:00 pm - September 2 @ 12:00 pm

Registration Open 
Trout Lake Abbey Retreat 
August 30-September 2

Dear friends along the path,
We invite you to join us on a creative Buddhist retreat at Trout Lake Abbey from the evening of Friday August 30 through late morning of Monday September 2, 2024.  The theme of the retreat is

Become the Light that Persists Through the Darkness
Shining in the Ten Directions
Friday, 8/30 – Monday, 9/2/24

We will call on Amida Buddha, who is the embodiment of infinite light and life and offers universal wisdom and boundless compassion to support us.  In our time together, our mindfulness practice will strenghten us as we tend our inner spark, developing solidity and stability, finding ways to deepen our metta and karuna (lovingkindness and compassion) practice, and provide us a touchstone to inspire wise and loving action.  Calling on the resources of somatic awareness, SoulCollage® and ritual, we can deeply embody our deepest aspirations for understanding and peace.

For those who are not familiar with the abbey, it is located in Southern Washington in a valley on the south side of Mt. Adams.   It is about a 20 mile drive north from Hood River in Oregon.  The photograph above is from the abbey looking toward the mountain to the north.  
Registation is now open.  To cover the various expenses of the event the base cost per person for the retreat is $485.  This includes all meals, lodging in:
      one of 7 meditation huts,
