Give your self one day for meditation — a day to still the mind. Learn how to apply methods of meditation and mindfulness while sitting, walking, exercising, working, eating, and all other activities. The simple and relaxed schedule allows you to settle your mind while at the same time allowing you to maintain a constant silent awareness of your every activity.

This retreat also includes brief Dharma talks, guided meditations, and a review of basic meditation methods such as breath awareness and total mind-body relaxation.

Most people find that attending these retreats regularly helps renew the strength of their daily practice. These retreats are held once each month.

Our Children's Program is scheduled to coincide with our Day of Stillness retreat. If you have children, you can bring them for the day while you attend the retreat.

This event is open to all Dharma friends who have been volunteers at DDRC for for at least three years, or who have volunteered at an intensive retreat at least five times. The retreat fees are reduced from our normal rates as a way of saying thank you for your ongoing support.

The precious teachings of our respected founder and teacher, Chan Master Sheng Yen (Shifu) live on when we utilize videos of his talks from past retreats. In this way, we hope to preserve and continue to share the Dharma Drum Lineage's Chan practice with the world, and give practitioners an opportunity to hear these teachings on intensive retreat, as spoken directly from the founder himself.

In addition to receiving instruction from Shifu's video lectures, you will also have guidance from an experienced Chan supervisor who will lead the practice in the Chan Hall.
