Please note: Wonderwell is temporarily closed for renovations. We will reopen May 1, 2016. Monday Night Meditation is taking place during this time at the managing teacher’s house. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Do you live in the area and want to connect with Wonderwell Mountain Refuge regularly? Please join us for the following ongoing events:
Sunrise Meditation and Community Breakfast
Most week-day mornings join residents and local community from 7:00 to 7:45 AM for silent meditation. This is an 45 minute meditation session including a brief period of liturgy. Following the practice, a simple breakfast is offered, 7:45 to 8:30 AM.
Monday Night Meditation
Join us on Monday nights for guided meditation and instruction from 6:30-8pm. This ongoing meeting is suitable for beginners (all levels welcome) and is open to anyone interested in learning the practice of meditation, or deepening in a practice they already have. Feel free to come early to hang our with us informally, between 5:30 and 6:30 pm, for tea, and also feel free to bring your own dinner if you wish. We have an oven and microwave for heating things up. At 6:30 pm the resident teacher will offer a meditation and dharma talk. You are welcome to join us or all or any one part of the evenings activities.
Once a month (most months), Wonderwell offers a day of meditation, prayer and dharma teaching (equivalent of a “sermon”), which is open to the community. Dharma Sunday runs from 10am-2pm, and includes silent meditation practice, a teaching on Buddhist practice, and a community potluck. Everyone is welcome! For more information about a particular Sunday see our Schedule page.
Please contact email@example.com for current weekday yoga offerings.
Wisdom Yoga – This gentle practice combines qi gong and hatha yoga asanas to emphasize tuning into the wisdom of the body.
Sivinanda Yoga – Explore pranayama (subtle body breathing practice), asana, and meditation in this 90 minute class.
Solar-Lunar Yoga – A session to exhale the day and reconnect to the inner well of being. Classes will start with warming and strengthening and conclude with restful yin poses.
All of the above are offered freely. The practice of “paying it forward” is always welcome, and a donation in accord with your means is tax deductible. All proceeds go to the ongoing maintenance and restoration of the refuge.
