Welcome to registration for the
WCCM-USA Spring In-Person Meditation Retreat
to be held at Montreat Conference Center

April 16 - 21, 2023    Montreat, North Carolina, USA

The theme of our 2023 WCCM-USA Retreat with Rev Dr Kathleen Weller is Silence and Beauty. In our teaching times we will consider how the beauty of God, nature, sound, sight and touch are enlivened by the silences of our meditation practice. And also how our meditation allows all of these to become both sacred and more available to us outside of our meditation times.

There will be times for wandering the beautiful grounds overlooking Lake Susan, sitting in the beauty of this sereme natural setting -- simply being.

This is an opportunity to deepen our meditation practice and build community with one another as part of The World Community for Christian Meditation-USA.

All attendees must complete their registration on the next page.

 All lodging and meals will be at Montreat Conference Center.
