Claim Your Inheritance a Weekend Retreat of Exploration at Well Being Retreat Center

July 12, 2024 at 4pm to July 14, 2024 at 2pm
"This Event will be devoted to exploring deeply into the Nature of our Existence.​"If a long lost aunt gave you a million dollars in her will, but you didn't know of her gift, it wouldn't do you much good. Your True Nature is like that. The gift has already been given, but we may not be aware of it. It is good news indeed that we don't have to earn the gift or be worthy of it. We simply need to recognize the gift that has already been given. The tricky part is that it's hard to recognize…See More

"Don't Postpone Your Enlightenment!" a Weekend Retreat of Meditation and Inquiry at Well Being Retreat Center

February 16, 2024 at 4pm to February 18, 2024 at 1pm
"It's astonishing how long we can avoid seeing the ever-present reality of our True Nature. If I hadn't done it myself for almost 60 years, I wouldn't believe it to be possible. Illusion is so convincing that we can remain deluded for a very long time, but, fortunately, not forever. At some point Life will maneuver us into a corner where we are left with no choice but to see what we have always been. That may be called Grace."Well Being Retreat Center is offering a weekend silent Retreat led by…See More

"Getting to the Heart of the Matter" a Weekend Retreat of Silence & Contemplation at Well Being Retreat Center

December 1, 2023 at 4pm to December 3, 2023 at 2pm
"This Event will be devoted to exploring deeply into the Nature of our Existence."Most people imagine enlightenment to be difficult, far away, and only for a select few. It is difficult to realize only because it is so simple, so near, and already complete as our essential nature. How then do we recognize what we already are? It is not a matter of adopting some belief system nor committing to a lifetime of striving. But it does require self-honesty, openness and humility. And a certain amount…See More

February 20, 2021 from 9am to 5pm
"We can live for a long time before it might occur to us to ask, "Who exactly is living this life?" It is a matter of identity. We might respond, "Well, me of course!" But who or what exactly is that?  If we don't know who we are, for whom are we living this life? It is a fundamental question that can transform our time here.The retreat will be led by Don Oakley, the Founding Director of Well Being Retreat Center and author of "…See More
