Meditation Retreat:Freedom from Craving

Event Date:  March 31, 2018 - 10:00am - 1:00pm Annapolis Half-Day Retreat: Freedom From Craving, Sat., Mar. 31, 10AM – 1PM Craving, which is also known as uncontrolled desire, always produces suffering. It begins when we see something or someone who appears attractive to us, and we escalate this attraction in our imagination until we feel we have to have it. Although it feels pleasant in the beginning, it always produces pain. In this retreat we will understand how craving develops and how to recognize, reduce and eventually eliminate it altogether. Then we can truly enjoy pleasant experiences without the pain. Location KMC Maryland Annapolis Branch 107 Ridgely Ave. Suite 14-A United States See map: Google Maps
