Annual Youth Retreat 2022

Devotees and Friends of the Georgia Buddhist Vihara,

We are happy to announce the Georgia Buddhist Vihara's annual youth retreat dates. This year's youth retreat will be from 7:30 AM - 8:30 PM on Thursday, July 21st, and Friday, July 22nd. This is an excellent opportunity for kids to spend dedicated time learning about self-discipline, meditation, Buddhist teachings, and the Buddhist tradition. Young people will learn through first-hand experience the benefits of following the Buddhist path through a period of focused learning and practice.  

The retreat is open to any young individual of 12 years and above. Those who are interested, please sign up for your children by July 19th, 2022.
