Chas DiCapua, Pat Coffey and Sharon Beckman-Brindley
In meditation – as in daily life - we can have all sorts of experiences, some pleasant, some not so much. In this retreat, we will explore ways to bring our meditation practice more deeply and more fully alive with it all, both on the cushion and in our ordinary and everyday challenges. We will see that we can make friends with all sorts of energies – as we discover and practice, together, the deep wisdom, kindness, compassion, and tranquility that are available to us in every single moment. This retreat will be an opportunity for you to establish, re-discover, or deepen your contemplative practice. Through the skilled guidance of our teachers, you will be supported in exploring, healing and transforming your relationship with yourself and all of creation.
The retreat will be conducted primarily in silence. There will be private and group meetings with teachers as well as periods for questions and answers. Even if you have never meditated before, this retreat offers you the caring instructions and support needed for you to establish a powerful contemplative practice.
The base retreat cost is $100. An additional fee will be added, depending on your choice of room. Click through the reservation form to view a detailed list of accommodation options and their costs.
