  • About This Event

    In this day retreat retreat we will look at how we can develop the peace of meditative stillness and concentration. A person with good concentration has control over their mind, like a well-trained horse that obeys its rider, and finds it easier to cultivate the positive qualities of mind we need to become a happier person. Through advancing our practice of meditation our distracting and unpeaceful thoughts subside and our mind becomes calm and smooth. Meditative stillness helps to make our body and mind comfortable and flexible and is essential if we wish to remain at peace in daily life.

    Retreat structure

    The retreat includes practical instructions, guided meditations, Q & A, and food and refreshments. In between sessions there is time to relax, rest, and spend time with like minded friends in our Cafe. The peaceful surroundings of KMC Florida help people to create a comfortable space within their own minds. they are attending.
