New Year’s Silent Meditation &
December 22, 2018 - January 2, 2019
Deepen your meditation practice with a silent retreat in scenic Mendocino, CA, at a private retreat center.
Retreats involve an extended period of Noble Silence, meaning that there’s very little talking, activity, or distraction. During these retreats, you will be able to maximize the amount of time each day that you spend meditating.
Our focus will be on cultivating mindfulness, compassion, and insight. Registration includes 3 meals a day, your room and yoga classes; according to the tradition of dana (generosity), the teachings are seen as priceless so the meditation teacher is compensated solely through donations.
You will be able to have a daily check-in with one on one meditation instruction from the teacher as well as a nightly dharma talk with Q&A from the group. The meditation teacher will be onsite for the duration of the retreat and will also be on-call 24/7 in case of any urgent concerns.
All are welcome!
Please note that registration fees are non-refundable.
Scheduling note: We are rescheduling this retreat from December 2018 to 3 days in January/February 2019. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the latest updates!
