Wise Effort

A One-Day Non-Residential Retreat With Adrianne Ross

Saturday, April 27, 2024, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Goward House


During this day of practice we will explore cultivating wise use of our energy. We are exposed to so many distractions, demanding our attention, that it can be hard to focus and apply our energy to what we really value.

The Buddha taught the Four Wise Efforts as a way of helping us avoid patterns that drain or distress us and for intentionally cultivating beneficial patterns that lead to well being for ourselves, our communities and the world.

Come and join us for a day of practice, rebalancing our energies, releasing difficult patterns and cultivating well being. The day will be in silence with instruction, meditation, walking, and time for questions and discussion.
