We live in times of increasing pressure—both individually and systemically—and this pressure can be experienced as intensity, stress, limitation, or dissatisfaction. The Four Noble Truths remind us that pressure is, and has always been, a part of life, and that freedom is possible within it. The teachings point to our relationship with pressure, and the ways we respond to it, as choice points where our freedom lies. This retreat offers a sanctuary space in which practitioners can choose rest, renewal, and liberation. Together we will practice in noble silence, integrating movement and stillness meditation, outdoor practice, and Dharma talks that lift up women’s journeys of awakening from a diversity of lineages and traditions.  We welcome all who identify as women, as well as non-binary folks who feel nourished in spaces centering women, to join this journey of insight, ease, and individual and collective liberation.

March Insight Meditation 1-Month Retreat Application - 2024

Awareness, or consciousness, is the very heart of sentient life. Yet in our practice we may not have learned how to meditate directly on this aspect of our experience. In this retreat we will explore the nature of awareness in three stages. First, we will develop concentration through mindfulness of breathing. Then we'll introduce lovingkindness meditation, inviting the beautiful qualities of the heart. Finally, we'll focus on specific meditative techniques that allow us to rest in the pure nature of awareness itself.
