About the Retreat
There is nothing more precious to us than our life. If we have a long life we can complete our spiritual path in this very life; for others also, when they are sick or in danger of dying, we can engage in this special practise on their behalf. This traditional retreat is offered each year around New Year time. Everybody is welcome.
