Give yourself a day for serious practice. Our intensive retreats follow the traditional Chan monastery retreat schedule, making the most efficient use of time in group practice.
Sitting periods are forty-minutes, and minimal instruction is given. Participants should arrive already knowing the basics techniques of meditation and be mentally and physically prepared for the demanding regimen.

Attending the Day of Stillness retreat the day before would be excellent preparation for attending this intensive retreat. If you attend both events you are welcome to stay over in our dormitory.

Most people find that attending these one-day retreats regularly can help renew the strength of their daily practice. The fee includes a vegetarian lunch.
