Much of our mental energy is spent strategizing about how to get more of what we want and how to get rid of what we don't want. Although this may be normal, the Buddha recognized that this tendency prevents us from fully experiencing and understanding the life that's unfolding within and around us moment to moment. Through the process of meditation, we can cultivate a new way of relating to ourselves and our experience - one based in clarity and kindness rather than driven by liking and disliking. By practicing in silence and with others on retreat, we are able to see more clearly life as it actually is and awaken our potential for freedom.

This retreat will be held in noble silence and we will offer instruction in both insight (vipassana) meditation and loving-kindness (metta) meditation. It will include periods of sitting, walking, chanting, and mindful movement. In addition to daily dhamma talks, there will be opportunities for dialogue with the teachers as well as small group discussions. Both new and experienced meditators are welcome.
