Led by Amanda Gilbert, this retreat will this retreat will focus on the foundational teachings of mindfulness meditation and compassions.
How it works // This immersive retreat is conducted in noble silence and you will be in a supportive group container for your meditation practice to deepen and flourish.
The daily structure includes:
- Sitting meditation (with instruction)
- Walking meditation
- Periods for reflection
- Mindful eating practice
- Morning and afternoon wisdom talks
Meditating in noble silence offers a special opportunity to maintain and reinvest your energy into yourself.
Very few people are able to attend a silent retreat, often because the commitment in time, travel, and cost is so high. This program is accessible to all locally who have been ready for a silent meditation retreat.
All levels are welcome. No prior experience is necessary.
