Suitable for both beginning and experienced meditation students, this silent meditation retreat includes guided meditation periods, silent sitting and walking meditation, dharma talk in the afternoon, and two question-and-response sessions.
Stress and life’s challenges are worthy of respect. No matter how much we try to push them away, they keep coming back. This day of practice will include direction in mindfulness of the breath, body, emotions and thoughts as a way of exploring our stress and suffering. In this way, instead of the old ways of reacting to life’s disappointments, you develop more skillful ways of responding to them that will bring you increased joy and freedom no matter how stressful your life may be.
Bring cushions & pillows, chairs will be available; and a bag lunch and drink if staying for the full day.
This venue is not accessible for those with mobility impairments.
IMCW Retreats and Workshops
IMCW retreats and workshops offer instruction in Buddhist meditation and talks on the awakening of our natural insight, love and wisdom. While the meditation practices derive from the Buddhist tradition, they are universal in orientation and address spiritual themes of concern to all contemplative traditions.
A workshop is not primarily silent (talking may be allowed during breaks and lunch) and may be focused on a special topic, such as applying meditation to relationships, emotional healing or physical well-being. Workshops may include a variety of formats, including different reflections and exercises and the sharing of experiences.
