Events and Calendar

Kairos Retreat Center, Spokane, WA

April 4 to 7, 2019, led by Bill Cooper

I’m writing this to invite friends on the path to join me at Kairos Retreat Center in Spokane, WA, for a short retreat in early April 2019. The beauty and spirit of Kairos provide a beneficial setting for practicing the Dharma. The sisters at Kairos are planning to host us from Thursday afternoon, April 4 to Sunday morning, April 7. 

The schedule will be much the same as previous retreats at Kairos, and the purpose of the retreat will be much the same: to give ourselves the opportunity to practice meditation, clarify the Dharma, and receive support in our quest to reduce our suffering and discomfort. 

My dharma talks will be based on the richness and wisdom of a few Pali sources. From there, I hope we can discuss and share the individual ways we are understanding and living the dharma. 

Cost: The charge for the retreat, which includes meals, is a range from $110-$140. There is no charge for teachings, but modest donations are appreciated.

If you are interested in attending, or if you have questions, please email BellevueDharma@gmail.comor call me at 425.894.7199 (cell). My websitealso has general information.
