On this 5-day retreat we’ll explore the teachings of the Buddha on Mindfulness of the Body based in Lovingkindness. The invitation is to slow down and come home to present moment awareness of our body-mind experiences. We’ll practice meeting what’s arising with kind attentiveness so that we can relate to all the different aspects of our lives with more clarity and understanding.
This silent retreat will include meditation instructions, periods of silent sitting and walking meditation, chanting, Dhamma reflections, group practice meetings and Q&As with the teacher. Optional qi gong practice will be offered as well.
This retreat is appropriate for new and experienced meditators.
Partial attendance is not offered on this retreat. Additionally, please consider attending this retreat only if your current life circumstances allow you to engage in an important modern renunciation practice of staying offline and off phone/text during the entire course of the retreat (some exceptions related to pressing family situations may be granted.)
