Retreat Description:
Where can we find true refuge? Join us to explore this question through practicing Buddhist insight meditation in sitting, walking, eating and daily activity. We will explore the deep well-being available to us at all times regardless of outer changing and unstable circumstances.

We will enter into a contemplative period, simplifying our lives by renouncing reading, writing, cellphones, computers, sex, and recreational drugs/alcohol for the week to help settle our minds and hearts. You will be expected to enter the retreat on the opening day and stay for the duration.

Dharma is for everyone but intensive silent retreat is only recommended for those with sufficient psychological stability. This retreat is not appropriate for those with recent trauma, fragile mental health, or who cannot be in silence for 6 nights. There will be guided meditations, dharma talks, and question times in groups, and minimal one on one interactions during the retreat.
