MindfulnessToolkit Retreat.jpg


with VMC Resident Teacher Kadam Matthew Riechers

Join Kadam Matthew on a relaxing weekend meditation retreat in the peaceful environment of the Catskills that will help you refresh your mind through meditation, whether you're a beginner or simply want to enjoy retreat in ideal conditions.

We all have the potential to be confident and worry-free, in all aspects of our lives. But sometimes we don’t know how to access these meaningful ways of thinking. On this retreat, receive practical tips to bring a meditative approach to your day to day life. Then, through exploring the practice of mindfulness, learn to actively bring these qualities to mind, again and again, so that they begin to transform all our activities into positive and meaningful experiences.

Enjoy guided meditations and modern Buddhist teachings, which present practical tools to incorporate meditation to your day to day life. In the breaks, enjoy meaningful conversation and relax amidst the beauty and tranquility of the Temple and its natural surroundings.

Held at KMC New York, home of the US Kadampa World Peace Temple, which is located amidst 82 acres of peaceful woodlands, the NEDC provides all the perfect conditions to enjoy a truly meaningful holiday.
