Occasion: 2020 Bodhi Retreat
Date: Saturday, December 5, 2020

Bodhi Day, which takes place each year in December, celebrates the day in which Siddhartha Gautama sat underneath the Bodhi tree and attained enlightenment, an event that would become the foundation upon which Buddhism has been building for over 2,500 years.
On this day, we reaffirm the timeless principles of Buddhism: enlightenment, compassion, and kindness to other living creatures. We may also wish to reflect on ways in which we can apply these principles to life in our modern world.
You are all welcome to join us! Our gathering will begin with coffee and fellowship at 9:30 a.m., followed by the start of the formal retreat at 10:00 a.m. The celebration will include chanting, meditation and a Dharma talk; and the retreat is open to friends already familiar with our tradition and anyone who may be interested in a quiet day of seasonal reflection.
