Slowing down, being silent and drawing inwards are vital for mental and spiritual well-being. During this 1/2 day retreat we will put down our phones, computers and normal daily activities to be guided into a space of silence and inspiration.

In this brief meditation retreat, we will combine our breathing with the mental recitation of the mantra OM AH HUM, which is called the “Mantra of all Buddhas.” Without any expectations or pressure, just spending time being quiet and unplugged in the blessed environment of Kadampa Meditation Center Hollywood, this silent retreat will provide a nourishing opportunity to go inwards, relax, and feel deeply connected to the potential for limitless peace and well-being that exists within you.

You can view this retreat as a gift you give to yourself and others because the time spent meditating and contemplating helps you advance and make progress in your practice, which helps you be kinder, more patient and more compassionate towards others.

“We have to manage our time and energy in such a way that we can be of maximum benefit to others, and to do this effectively we need time alone to recover our strength, collect our thoughts and see things in perspective.” -New 8 Steps to Happiness
