While the Buddha’s teachings originated in South Asia over 2,500 years ago, they are still deeply relevant for us today. Held in noble silence, this retreat will explore ancient Buddhist practices, stories, and insights, and it will include guided meditations, Dharma talks, and time for questions. Together we will weave mindfulness into our practices of sitting, walking, eating, and basic daily activities. The renunciation of technology, books, entertainment, and other aspects of regular life will help facilitate the development of insight that will bring great benefit to our everyday practice as we return to our modern lives. This retreat is open to all levels of experience, but please note that silent intensive meditation retreats of this kind are not recommended for those who have had a recent traumatic experience or who have significant unresolved trauma.

The Nature Inside: A Women's Daylong on the Four Elements

Open to all self-identified Women. In the Buddha’s instruction on cultivating mindfulness using the body, one method he taught was the use of the four elements: Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. Throughout this meditation daylong for self-identified women, we will use the four elements practice to investigate our own relationship to our body and to remind us of our connection to the natural world. Our schedule will flow between sitting and movement meditation, guidance, and silence. Join us for a connective, welcoming, and restorative retreat.
