BRIEF: Opportunity for young adults to explore Buddhism

Sravasti Abbey invites young adults ages 18 to 29 to explore the Buddha’s teachings within American culture during its annual Come and See: Young Adults Explore Buddhism program. No meditation experience is necessary; just an open and curious mind/heart, according to a press release.

The course will be June 24 through July 1 and includes meditation instructions and practice, teachings, dharma discussions and working outdoors in gardens, meadows and woodlands in northeastern Washington. Click here for a detailed program description.

A dana offering and registration form are requested to reserve your place for the retreat. Click here to download the registration form.
