The retreat runs from Tuesday evening, July until
Saturday afternoon, July 11. It is a rare opportunity,
right here in Pueblo, to grab some quiet in the middle
of a hot summer in the city. For a few days, leave
behind the phones calls, the electronics and the modern
pace of life. Follow in the footsteps of Buddhist
nuns and monks throughout the centuries. Perhaps you
can discover something about yourself. Registration
is going well but openings are available for anyone
who would like to take advantage of this convenient
and affordable retreat.

Tuesday Mornings Sittings
and friends of the Wet Mountian Sangha, for those who
have been looking for a practice opportunity but are
burdened with the hustle-and-bustle of the daily-grind
schedule, Wet Mountain Sangha is expanding Open Hall
to include Tuesday mornings. Morning meditation
has been a foundation for daily practice across traditions
and it is with this spirit that WMS invites anyone and
everyone to take up the path and join us at the Zendo
(for open hall) from 6:30 am- to 7:30 am at the CIP.
Arrive a little early if you wish for orientation or
to help with the set up. It is okay to quietly arrive
or leave at 7:00.
