2024/04/27 Adrianne Ross One Day Retreat

VICTORIA DAYLONG April 27 2024 with Adrianne Ross
April 27, 2024 at Goward House in Victoria.
2495 Arbutus Road.
Saturday 0900am to 4pm
In-person only
Registration open.    REGISTER
During this day of practice we will explore cultivating wise use of our energy. We are exposed to so many distractions demanding our attention that it can be hard to focus and apply our energy to what we really value. The Buddha taught the Four Wise Efforts as a way of helping us avoid patterns that drain or distress us and intentionally cultivate beneficial patterns that lead to well being for ourselves, our communities and the world.
Come and join us for a day of practice, rebalancing our energies, releasing difficult
patterns and cultivating well being.
The day will be in silence with instruction, meditation, walking and time for questions
and discussion.
