Regular Monastery Schedule Resumes

Spring is in the air.  The winter retreat has finished at Tisarana and we’re back to the regular monastery schedule.  The community had a good winter retreat.  There were no serious illnesses and things seemed to go quite smoothly.  The retreat was broken up into times of individual practice and group practice.  Thanks to all who supported the community in holding the retreat.  It was an excellent opportunity for all involved to deepen their practice.
