Young Adults Explore Buddhism

Dharma, discussion, and meditation for ages 18-29

What Is It?

Young Adults Explore Buddhism is a retreat of discovery for young people aged 18 to 29.

Do you question conventional cultural values and want to work toward a better world? Want to learn ways to make your life meaningful? And meet others like yourself? come explore!

Renowned Buddhist author and teacher Venerable Thubten Chodron leads the course. No meditation experience is necessary—just a curious mind and open heart.

The course includes meditation instruction and practice, teachings, and discussions, as well as working outdoors in the Abbey’s forest and meadows. In all these ways, we get deep and personal about the urgent issues facing young people right now.

If you crave connection, are trying to make sense of the world, and want to learn how to make your life meaningful, join us for Young Adults Explore Buddhism.
