Come practice silent mindfulness and insight meditation for a week within a group of your peers. Give yourself a break from constant over-stimulation and external demands to create a time for greater inner calm, spaciousness and presence. We will explore radical self awareness and deeper embodiment through the ancient practices of silent sitting and walking meditations with periods of Qi Gong. Over the course of the week we will extend these practices until the entire day is one of steady awareness. On the last day of the retreat we practice coming in and out of silence to learn about conscious connection with the community around us. This is a fully silent retreat and we will ask you to turn off and put away all electronic devices.
Also remember that the cost above is priced as a sliding scale. Please pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This allows others who need to pay less the opportunity to attend. Fee is for room and board. Teaching and staffing of the retreats is by donation at the end of the retreat. For more information, see Retreat FAQ.

Sliding Scale: $75 – 200. Code GD1D18.
As white people, it can be challenging to recognize our biases, prejudices, and privilege. Engaging in this practice may push our comfort boundaries, as we awaken together in this way.
We all long for connection, and live in a society that constructs and perpetuates systems that divide and separate us. In Buddhism, differences and identities are often minimized in the noble endeavor to lessen the focus on the self.
We will explore how to both navigate and utilize our white privilege skillfully through guided meditation, discussion, and reflection, and experience a new freedom of expression unobstructed by constructions of identities around whiteness.
Open to all those who self-identify as white people.
Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
