Registration is now open!

The Gay Buddhist Fellowship’s 23rd Annual Fall Retreat will be held on the third weekend in September of 2014–Friday, the 19th through Sunday the 21st. We return to beautiful Vajrapani Institute, nestled among redwoods and streams in the Santa Cruz mountains near Boulder Creek. Join us as we explore this year’s theme:  Karma:  It’s Not What You Think.  We will once again be guided by our beloved teacher, friend and fellow sangha member David Lewis.  Click here to link to a printable, PDF version of the registration flyer, which should answer most of your questions about cost and accommodations (for more information about Vajrapani Institute, click on the link above).

The weekend blends elements of a traditional, silent retreat—sitting and walking meditation—with interactive experiences presented by sangha members. We draw on the individual and collective wisdom of the sangha as our “teacher.” It is an opportunity to deepen both our practices and our connections to one another.  Feeling hesitant?  Take a breath and take a risk to explore more connection to yourself and others through the dharma!
