Open Practice Weekend
with Lopon Elizabeth Monson
Friday, October 6  5:30 pm - Sunday, October 8, 2017 1:00 pm
Wonderwell Mountain Refuge, 253 Philbrick Hill Road, Springfield, NH 03284

All contemplative traditions welcome! Enjoy a silent day of practice or stay for the weekend. Deepen your personal practice, participate in the Natural Dharma Fellowship Lineage Practices, explore the natural beauty of the seasons of Wonderwell and connect to opportunities for guidance from the teachers in residence.

Anyone is welcome to stay overnight. The rate per person per night is $108. NDF Contributing Members receive a 50% rate reduction during an Open Practice weekend. This rate includes a simple vegetarian meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, including access to kitchen staples, teas, and snacks throughout the day. If you're interested in just coming for the day and participating in group and solo practice without spending the night (see the schedule below), there is a $10 suggested donation for the day without meals, and if you plan to stay for meals we ask for a $10 donation for breakfast, $15 for lunch, and $15 for dinner.

If you wish to schedule an interview with any of the teachers who will be in residence during the weekend please contact:
