Retreat On-Land

May 11 - May 16, 2024 Saturday - Thursday | 5 nights

Spring Insight Retreat

The Buddha suggested that we have underestimated the capacity of our heart. Retreat helps us to remember. In mindfulness meditation, we practice resting, looking deeply, and knowing moment by moment what it's like to be human. The more deeply we look, the more reason we have to love. Together, we'll sit in the refuge provided by a 2,600-year legacy of wisdom and kindness. In silence, we come to know the preciousness of our life and the poignancy of the human condition.

Retreat On-Land

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

Young Adult Insight Meditation Retreat

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.
