Asheville Insight Meditation offers regular silent meditation retreats to support you in learning, growing, and reaping the greatest benefits from your meditation practice. We currently offer two types of retreats: Residential Silent Retreats and Half-Day Silent Retreats.
Residential Silent Retreats
Silent retreats are an excellent way to deepen and fortify your practice. You have the opportunity to maintain mindfulness full-time while residing in a beautiful setting, away from the continual demands of your daily life. Retreat participants often report significant insights and growth from this extended immersion into mindful living.
