On September 20-23, 2024, the Life Transition Meditation Center (LTMC) will proudly host its second annual Veterans Meditation Retreat at the Clyde Hotel in Albuquerque, NM.  Participants will continue to meet weekly on Zoom to practice meditation and check-in. Many participants from the 2023 retreat expressed gratitude for the project and felt the connection and camaraderie with fellow Veterans, which was the best part, as well as the awareness of slowing down to concentrate on the breath.

We are deeply grateful for all of the support from our volunteers, who spent over 2000 hours over fourteen months to launch the first annual VMR retreat.
