At the still point of the turning world…
Neither from nor towards;
at the still point, there the dance is…
–T.S. Eliot

This retreat offers the unique opportunity to practice continuous mindfulness in sitting and walking meditation throughout the day. In the silence, we are freed from much of the daily barrage of stimulus that draws our attention outward, allowing us delve deeply inward.

Becoming aware of our experience from a place of stillness and equanimity allows us to see more clearly; and as insight deepens, compassion and wisdom can arise. This retreat is designed for both beginners and experienced practitioners.

There is no fee to participate. The practice of Dana (generosity) lies at the heart of Buddhism, reflecting a deep understanding of interconnection and freedom from craving. In this way, generosity strengthens relationship and reciprocity as the sangha, yogis, and teachers all support one another. We welcome donations at events and through our website.
