Annual Spring Retreat

*Save the Date* April 9 – 15, 2018

With Dharma Teachers Larry Ward and Peggy Rowe-Ward

For the last three years, MCPS has enjoyed a rich tradition of holding an Annual Retreat at Camp Indianola on Bainbridge Island. Several sangha members have volunteered to lead and support our 2018 Annual Retreat, ensuring this tradition of practice continues. Our 2018 Annual Retreat will be led by Senior Dharma Teachers Larry Ward and Peggy Rowe-Ward, who have been ordained by Thich Nhat Hanh, and now reside locally on Vashon Island.

 Besides leading their well known dharma talks and retreats for adults, both internationally and locally, Peggy (Doctorates in Education and Counseling) and Larry (PhD in Neuroscience) also spent 2 years with a K-12 school with children from 40 different countries where we integrated mindfulness into classes and activities. “We both have worked with K-12, parents, teachers, all ages, helping the dharmma to be fun, accessible, ordinary magic…kids love being peaceful and they enjoy peaceful people, and they don’t like being hijacked by their emotions, they are motivated students…” – Peggy Rowe Ward

The full week retreat will be April 9-15, weekday retreat will be April 9-13, and weekend & family retreat will be April 13-15.

Please mark your calendars, and we will keep you updated on the theme and registration as it evolves.
