This retreat is suitable for both beginners as well as practitioners who would enjoy a refresher overview of the Eightfold Path and the Metta Sutta (Instructions on Impartial Kindness). Periods of didactic (interactive) instruction in a variety of concentration and mindfulness strategies will alternate with periods of silence to allow for contemplative practice. The relationship of ‘techniques of practice’ to the ‘goal of practice’ will be highlighted so that commitment to practice is strengthened. This short retreat will be presented as ongoing practice in order to emphasize that all of life is practice. Mindful movement, suitable for all, will be integrated into the group practice. This three-day “mini” residential retreat will start in the morning on the first day (9:30am) and end mid-afternoon (3:00pm) on the third day.
