There is an upcoming retreat on April 25-27 at the LaSalle Manor Retreat Center. It is a nice 48 hour retreat that is very do-able for relative beginners and busy people wanting a short getaway. Several of our members have gone in recent years. The host group, Lakeside Buddha Sangha (of Evanston ) follows the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and the dharma teachings are based on that style of Buddhism but the retreat is open to all interested parties. Basic dorms are available and food is vegetarian and they accommodate vegans or GF as well. The grounds are fantastic for walking meditation and contemplation. You can print out and reserve your spot by mail through their main website, which is linked to the event page below. Highly recommended.
Signup deadline April 18th!
