Buddhism and Chi Kung on the
A recovery journey and intimate experience of peace and spirit.
Join Kevin Griffin and Greg Pergament for a unique spiritual retreat in an inspiring natural setting where we explore mindfulness and recovery through silent meditation, energizing movement, dialog, and interactive exercises. Kevin and Greg bring decades of recovery experience and Buddhist practice to their teaching, offering a creative and innovative approach to spiritual growth.
With the legendary power of Sedona as a backdrop, these respected authors will guide you toward inner peace and wisdom, while cultivating a compassionate heart. We will spend time on the land, looking outward, and time in meditation looking inward. We will face demons and call on the power of awareness and love to conquer our fear, craving, and delusions.
Be ready to grow and change.
Be ready for Sedona Mago Retreat.
