YEAR OF EVENTS :

Give yourself one day for meditation — a day to still the mind.

This silent retreat is non-intensive; the simple and relaxed schedule allows you to settle your mind while at the same time allowing you to maintain a constant awareness of your every activity.

Sitting periods are thirty minutes. In between sittings you are guided in gentle yoga and walking meditation.

The retreat also offers a review of basic meditation methods such as breath awareness, as well as brief Dharma talks.

If you would like to also attend the 1-Day Intensive retreat on the following day, 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.
