Silent Retreat 2019: Opening the Heart, Befriending the Mind, Acting Wisely
November 17 - November 21$750 – $1125
Mindfulness practice helps us welcome each moment of our experience with kindness, balance, and discernment. In this way, we learn to make friends with our own minds, open our hearts to the fullness of life, and show up more lovingly and wisely in relationships. On retreat, these new ways of being with our experience are facilitated by periods of silent sitting meditation, walking meditation, mindful eating, and soulful communal prayer. In addition to these practices, each participant will have an opportunity to check in during the retreat with our seasoned faculty to discuss any challenges and breakthroughs that may be arising in practice. The retreat will be held in social silence, which means that we will be quiet together to facilitate a deep turning inward to explore and cultivate the inner life.
