Retreat Details

Vipassana Retreat for Experienced Practitioners with Heather Martin and Sister Pannavatti

February 15, 2014 - February 23, 2014

Annually we offer a retreat for those with more experience in practice, to allow for a deepening exploration and understanding of the dhamma.   We request a minimum of 4 residential retreats of 5 days or more.

This retreat follows our usual format, conducted in silence, with sitting and walking meditation periods, daily dharma talks, unfolding instructions, and individual practice discussions with the teachers.

This year Heather Martin is joined by Sister Pannavati Bikkhuni.

Annual New Year’s Eve Retreat with Heather Martin

December 27, 2013 - January 01, 2014

This is the perfect time of year for retreating: after the stimulation of the holiday season, gathering to re-connect with our inner lives, and to reflect on the season.

This period of intensive practice is suitable for both beginning and experienced practitioners, and – as with all our retreats – will include systematic meditation instructions, guided Loving Kindness practices, Dharma Talks, individual practice discussions and a daily period of mindful yoga with Celeste Mallett.

We will celebrate New Year’s Eve with late evening sitting, together with a ceremony fitting the turning of the year, with the option of staying up till midnight. More info here.

Cultivation Compassion – A Meditation Retreat with Robert Crusick

November 15, 2013 - November 17, 2013

The intention to cultivate compassion extends beyond helping one feel more empathy and concern for others. A compassionate attitude can reduce the distress we feel in difficult situations and can become a profound personal resource in times of stress. It includes developing the strength to be present with suffering, the courage to take compassionate action and the resilience to prevent compassion fatigue. These are qualities that support a wide range of goals — from improving personal and work relationships to making a positive difference in the world. Through instruction, mindfulness & loving-kindness meditation, and group interaction, we will explore and strengthen the qualities of compassion, empathy, and kindness for others and for ourselves.

Open to experienced and beginner meditation practitioners.
