The Buddhist spirit is one of psychological and personal growth, a maturing of self, an exploration of inner self. Every human BE-ing is naturally born with the innate nature and desire for more. This day Retreat explores the meaning of the word Buddha and includes a variety of sharing  about this philosophy of hope, love, kindness and compassion. Everyone welcome.
