Autumn Weekend Meditation Retreat in Sullivan County Catskills NY - Letting Go of the Past

Step out of your busy daily life and into the peace and beauty of Kadampa Meditation Center New York. This beginner-friendly retreat offers guided meditation and practical teachings on modern Buddhism.

We often have trouble letting go of painful events in our past. We feel that they define us and affect how we respond to our current life situations. Through applying wisdom and training in meditation, we can illuminate the real source of pain and difficulty within our minds and learn to release it completely, leaving us with a tremendous feeling of relief and joy.

Discover how you can improve the quality of your life through learning to live each moment with gratitude, freedom and inner peace. Then, re-enter your life confident, balanced and refreshed.
Enjoy guided meditations and modern Buddhist teachings, which present practical tools to incorporate meditation to your day to day life.

This Autumn retreat will provide three sessions each day. The sessions combine practical instruction and guided meditation that will allow you to:

  • connect with an experience of inner peace through meditation

  • develop basic techniques that can help you to create a consistent habit of meditation

  • leave with practical inner tools to apply what you’ve have learned to your daily life

Between sessions enjoy healthy snacks and locally roasted coffee in the World Peace Cafe, immerse yourself in the stunning foliage on our 82 acres of trails and woodlands, or explore the local Catskills towns. A relaxing weekend meditation retreat in the peaceful environment of the Catskills. Whether you're a beginner or simply want to enjoy retreat in ideal conditions, this weekend will help you refresh your mind through meditation.
Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary.
