Searching for a retreat in the Midwest

Searching for a retreat in the Midwest

Postby baileyd123 » Sun Jun 01, 2014 4:07 pm

Hello everyone,
I've been studying Buddhism and similar Eastern traditions for quite a while now and would like to try a retreat at which I could receive guidance from somebody more experienced than I. Particularly something that focuses on meditation, and preferably in a forest or wooded environment. I live in central Ohio but would be willing to travel as far as southeast New York, Virginia/Kentucky, Indiana, or Michigan. I am 16, so it would have to have liberal age restrictions, but I do my best to be devoted to my practice. Lastly, a Summer retreat would be best since I am still in high school. It may be too late this Summer but perhaps I could catch an annual retreat next year.
Thank you!

If studying with a sravakayana crowd is not a barrier for you, consider a 10-day retreat with this group:
www.dhamma.org
They offer retreats in Illinois and Michigan, and some other midwestern states. and nearby Canadian provinces:
