True Freedom : The Practice of Surrendering Desire

Freedom lies within each one of us.  Culturally we understand freedom as that which is found through the validation of external forces. True freedom is practicing the ability to listen to and take action from the perspective of the soul. Once we acquire the tools and refine the skills to discover and surrender our desires, we are able to cultivate lives with less suffering and therefore more freedom.

Join us for a winter weekend retreat to explore meditation, movement and ritual as gateways to harnessing your true freedom.


The retreat will be held at the beautiful Won Dharma Center in Upstate New York, nestled on 400 acres overlooking the Hudson Valley and the Catskill Mountains. Surrounded by wooded foothills with a nearby brook, the retreat center is a serene natural setting for contemplation and renewal.  A green community designed with sensitivity to nature and issues of sustainable design, the center consists of eco-friendly buildings designed to provide a tranquil and meditative atmosphere. The Won Dharma Center won the 2010 Design Award from Faith & Form / IFRAA International Awards Program for Religious Art and Architecture. 


All prices include your meditation and movement class sessions, rituals, room costs, three delicious vegetarian meals daily, and access to the Won Dharma grounds and activities.  The center is surrounded by several magnificent state parks perfect for exploration and contemplation

Won Dharma has won design awards for their minimal yet warm approach to their rooms and gathering halls. Each room provides a Zen setting for a weekend of relaxation and reconnection to self.
