a place for connection…

We welcome you

First launched in the summer of 2014, Wise Heart Young Adult Retreat helps participants cultivate open-heartedness, compassion and wisdom as well as specific tools for handling everyday challenges. We do this through meditation (walking and sitting), listening to teachings on Buddhism, having deep discussions as well as through art, body movement, relaxation exercises, games, being in nature and other fun activities. Together we are growing a community that is authentic, joyful, aware, kind and dedicated.

Wise Heart Young Adult Retreat is a LGBTQ+ inclusive community.
