What Is It?

Young Adults Explore Buddhism is a retreat of discovery for young people aged 18 to 29. Normally, it’s a weeklong residential program. In 2020, we met over Zoom. The next offering will be June, 2021. Whether it’s live or online is yet to be determined. 

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 discussion.

When it’s live, the course includes working outdoors in the Abbey’s forest and meadows.  With the 2020 Zoom version, we were still able get deep and personal about the urgent issues facing young people right now. Check back for 2021 dates and location.
