Retreat On-Land

August 5 - August 10, 2024 Monday - Saturday | 5 nights

Young Adult Insight Meditation Retreat

Open to ages 18-32. Come practice silent mindfulness and Insight Meditation in community with your peers. Give yourself a break from constant overstimulation and external demands as we create a supportive space for cultivating greater calm, spaciousness, and presence. Together we will explore the ancient practices of guided and silent sitting, walking, and heart meditations, along with movement, teacher meetings, and Dharma talks. Over the course of the  week, we will extend these practices until the entire day is one of steady, continuous awareness.

Reciprocity and the Web of Life: Practices for Recovering Attention

10 CE Credits. As the earth calls our attention and old narratives dissolve around us, we are asked to navigate our lives differently. At an evolutionary threshold like this, the Dharma is a formidable anchor to keep us grounded. By working with ancient and new ways of experiencing embodied existence, we are consciously re-rooting in the web of life, bringing about an expanded perception of who we are and thereby opening us into our next steps on the path.

Transforming the Judgmental Mind

6 CE Credits. Judgments of a reactive and compulsive nature can have a strong impact on our lives. They can distort our perceptions, make relationships difficult, and undermine our work. Together we will examine what judgments are and how to work with them, using mindfulness, “heart” practices, and inquiry. These explorations will help us to preserve the discernment often found in judgments, while working through their destructive aspects. Attendees will have the option of regular follow-up sessions to continue and deepen the learning.
