All Souls UU Church in Palatka, Florida, hosted a Buddhist Meditation Retreat for the weekend of June 9-10, 2012. Beginning at 1:00pm Saturday, about two dozen people gathered at the home of Nancy Smith and Virginia Belson on Silver Lake to spend the afternoon in meditation under the guidance of Sensei Morris Sekiyo Sullivan. That was followed by a delicious vegetarian dinner.
On Sunday morning, the regular church service was preceded by a Pancake Breakfast at Hammock Hall. At 11:00am, the church service included a Ti Sarana (Going for Refuge) ceremony, during which five people went for refuge and received dharma names.
