Labor Day Weekend in Wimberley

Friday August 30 - Monday Sept 2
Every year our Lotus Ranch retreat offers us an opportunity to take our spiritual practice up a notch. During retreat, we have a chance to go deeper and let go of our usual busyness, preoccupations, and worries. Retreat gives us the opportunity to experience a spacious and life-enhancing perspective. Even with poor concentration, we are generally more peaceful, relaxed, and happy on retreat than in our ordinary fast-paced lives.
