It is a pleasure to invite you to attend a Meditation Therapy Weekend. By asking to attend a Weekend, you will have priority to attend. Most weekends are near Toronto, Ontario, but weekends may be held anywhere that there are enough interested people. As soon as you ask to attend, you will begin receiving regular, periodic assistance by E-mail, telephone and in person. This will help you to establish your meditation practice and prepare you to make your retreat a landmark experience.
A Meditation Therapy Weekend is a great time to review your life and let new flowers bloom. Our work is focused and loving. We begin at 8 PM on Friday evening and leave on Sunday at about 3:30 PM.The weekend will encourage you to build or strengthen your meditation practice and to work through personal issues and relationship issues. Everyone is welcome, including couples and singles. We meet at lovely locations near to parks or natural settings. If you want to attend or if you need more information, let me know soon. As soon as you enroll, you may begin the work of preparing for the Weekend.
