Thanksgiving Weekend

November 21, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - November 23, 2018 @ 2:00 pm

During our Thanksgiving retreat this year we will practice to the theme of “Peaceful Action, Open Heart”.  Learning that peace comes from within helps us to open our heart and practice loving kindness and compassion both for ourselves and for others.  

When faced with the challenges of our complicated world, we often feel like we “should do something” to make things better.  Very often we may not know what it is we “should” be doing.  We will look deeply into the principle that peace begins in ourselves.  We will look further into how inner peace is the foundation of compassionate action.

Peaceful Action, Open Heart.  Two beautiful principles for engagement and transformation in our world.  Come and join us for this empowering retreat.

We at Magnolia Grove Monastery seek to cultivate tolerance, kindness, compassion, generosity and wisdom in turn creating a more peaceful and mindful world. We welcome everyone, regardless of religion, ethnicity, or lifestyle.

Note: If you wish to stay until Sunday, November 25, please kindly let us know. We are happy to have your presence :).
