At Home Retreat: Inner Peace in a Chaotic World
June 9 - 13, 2021
“Everybody wants a happy life. This goal is entirely dependent on our inner peace… We are trying to seek a joyful, happy life from the outside — that is a mistake.” – His Holiness the Dalai Lama
This past year has taught us that our human lives can be quite precarious and chaotic! As spiritual practitioners we learn that even though it is impossible to control our outer world, we can cultivate an “inner peace” independent of ANY external conditions. During this retreat, Ronya will guide you in zoom sessions – engaging you in the ancient Buddhist Vipassana/Insight meditation practices that have brought profound “inner peace” to multitudes of people, and all from the safety and security of your own home.
Sponsored by Southern Dharma Retreat Center, located in the mountains of Western North Carolina, this online meditation retreat’s schedule will include formal sitting meditations, walking meditation periods, daily dharma talks, specific instructions, guided mindful movement, group interviews, and Buddhist chanting.
This retreat is appropriate for those who have attended a previous silent meditation
retreat, as well as experienced daily meditation practitioners.
For our 2021 at home retreats, three fee tiers are offered. Please choose the option that best fits your ability to give in this time. Any amount paid above the Base rate is a tax deductible contribution to Southern Dharma Retreat Center. Your confirmation email is your receipt for tax purposes.
We are deeply grateful for your support.
Registration fees do not include dana for the teacher. In the Buddhist tradition the teachings are offered freely and teachers are not paid for their offerings. They rely on dana contributions from students. Similarly, Southern Dharma keeps registration fees low to ensure the Dharma is accessible to all. Fees cover only a fraction of Southern Dharma’s operating expenses. We appreciate your practice of generosity to continue the dissemination of the Dharma!
Southern Dharma is now offering 50% scholarship awards for BIPOC and young adults in addition to those with financial need. Indicate your interest in a scholarship during the registration process. More information available here.
