Understanding the Mind – Happiness From a Different Source

This event will be held at the World Peace Temple, 900 E Northern Parkway in Baltimore.

The more we understand our mind, the more ability we have to create happiness because happiness is a feeling, and feelings are one of the parts of our mind.   We will explore the nature, function and activities of the mind in this retreat, which will allow you to gain power to change your mind, giving yourself inner protection from suffering.

The Power of Joy and Peace

During this retreat, we will leave behind our normal worries and travel to the beautiful Lost River Retreat Center in Lost City, WV. In this spacious environment, we will relax and rejuvenate ourselves by engaging in special meditations. These meditations will be based on Buddha’s teaching on the six perfections that lead to the state of enlightenment. There will be plenty of time to relax, rest, and socialize on this special weekend. We will be joined by practitioners from all over the mid-Atlantic area. No experience is necessary and everyone is welcome.
