About Silent Retreats

Your meditation practice can be greatly supported by enhancing your skills during continued silent practice over several hours. Participants at silent retreats regularly report that they see their mindfulness practice ripen and mature to greater depths, as they gain deeper insight into their mental habit patterns and lives.

What to Expect

You will be guided through alternating periods of silent sitting meditation (one 60-minute, and two 45-minute periods) and walking meditation (two 30-minute walks).

We begin at 9:00am with a brief introduction. We then meditate (sitting and walking) from 9:00 am until 12:15 pm, followed by a five-minute break, and then a 30-minute discussion/Q&A period. At 1:00pm, we conclude our session together.
