Dharma Talks Access for Retreatants

Living Awareness Through Insight Meditation

Join us for this 7-night retreat of exploring awareness through the vehicle of the body and in the spirit of a heart of friendliness, compassion, and nonreactive balance. In this silent retreat, we will practice sitting and walking meditation. Instructions will be offered daily including a Dharma talk every evening, and there will be individual and group practice meetings with the retreat teachers. There will also be optional times for guided mindful yoga practice. This retreat is suitable for both beginning and experienced practitioners.
