Meditation retreat planned at St. Mary’s Art Center

A Residential Meditation Retreat, focusing on death and dying is planned for the weekend of May 14-16 at St. Mary’s Art Center in Virginia City.

Qell-known Buddhist teacher, Marv Treiger Ph.D. MFT, will lead the retreat.

“There is no way to avoid aging, illness and death. So then, how must we train? One way – the way of this retreat – is to contemplate the way it really is for us by way of the wisdom teachings,” Marv Treiger says.

St. Mary’s was a hospital during the Comstock days of the silver mines. It’s been restored and has a wonderful atmosphere for retreats. It is possible to attend for a day, instead of the whole weekend.
