A Special Breathing Meditation Retreat

  • Fort Worth Botanic Garden 3220 Botanic Garden Boulevard Fort Worth, TX, 76107 United States

During this retreat we will learn how to do the Buddhist healing meditation called Taking and Giving. Taking and Giving is a beautiful and powerful method to become free from negativity, illness and personal problems. In addition it helps us to create a great amount of positive karma and develop our good heart.

Join us for part or all of this day retreat to create mental peace and happiness, increase your spiritual strength and capacity to overcome challenges while maintaining a compassionate good heart.

When we purify our mind through the practices of taking and giving, every spiritual realization will grow easily in our mind.
