Event Calendar


Day of Stillness

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.
