"I have arrived, I am home."
Thich Nhat Hanh
I felt in need of a great pilgrimage,
so I sat still for three days and God came to me.
"Within yourself is a stillness, a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself."
I hope you are well and happy and at home, wherever you are.
This is just a reminder that we will be gathering on Sunday evening at St. Augustines Episcopal Church on Lower College Rd in Kingston at 6 PM.
There will be sitting/walking/sitting meditation, a sharing of the Dharma and Steph will be facilitating. It will be lovely. I hope you will be able to attend.
Thank you again to those of you who helped with and attended the Aldersgate Retreat. The geese liked to lead our walking meditations..I thought you might enjoy this...

INFORMATION FROM CLARE ABOUT THE DOM
A day of mindfulness is being offered at the home of Clare and Art at 680 Curtis Corner Road, Wakefield RI on Saturday, June 1st.
We will begin at 9 a.m. with a sitting meditation and we will have a walking meditation and stick qigong practice as well as a deep relaxation and talk by Thay. We will end with a vegetarian potluck lunch.
This is such a precious time to be together. Please bring your own cushion if you prefer a cushion and prepare to spend a day in the company of loving beings. There will be an option to walking outside for those who are wary of ticks. Everyone please be prepared with sunscreen and tick protection. If you have any questions, please email them to Clare at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please RSVP so we have a sense of how many people to expect.
The fragrance of the lilac to you,
