In Don's In-Person Teaching Events

Don is currently leading weekend retreats at Well Being Retreat Center in Tazewell, Tennessee about 90 minutes north of Knoxville. 

In addition to hosting a wide variety of spiritual and wellness groups at Well Being Retreat Center, Don leads weekend (mostly silent) meditation retreats about ten weekends each year. 

The retreats generally begin late Friday afternoon and end with after lunch on Sunday. Don gives an introductory talk Friday evening after orientation and introductions. On Saturday morning Don will lead a guided meditation and will present a talk on a themed topic. Several silent sittings will be scheduled throughout the day. In the afternoon, there will be an extended period for Q&A. Sunday morning will be a time for any remaining questions, a silent sitting and sharing.


The weekend will be held in silence, except for Saturday afternoon, to enhance the experience of looking within. These retreats are non-denominational experiential investigations into our True Nature.
