The intention of the one-day Finding Peace in the midst of all that is happening silent retreat day is to gently hold the space enabling you to deepen your personal practice of mindfulness-based meditation.

The teachings are offered in a space of noble silence and through sitting, standing, lying, walking practices, and mindful movement as we cultivate direct exploration of both formal and informal mindfulness-based practice. There will be afternoon talks on relevant themes, deepening our understanding of the essential teachings that are the very fabric of mindfulness-based practice.

In the midst of daily life, the invitation is to find a space and take your seat, as best you can meeting whatever arrives with friendliness and compassion. Together we will practice letting go of physical and mental tensions, and without judgment, practicing accepting whatever is left. Of course, knowing that it is always OK to turn away and come back to a reliable, accessible, neutral anchor whenever the mind becomes unsettled, or attention feels lost. The guidance will reflect this intention.

At the end of each retreat day, there will be the opportunity for sharing and reflection in the group environment as part of dissolving the silence.

A heart full of love and compassion is the main source of inner strength, willpower, happiness, and mental tranquility.
Dalai Lama

The silent retreat days are designed to meet the retreat needs of Mindfulness-based teachers, those training to teach Mindfulness-based Interventions MBI’s, Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction MBSR, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy MBCT, and those who include mindfulness in their profession. The retreat also meets the BAMBA Good Practice Guidelines for Mindfulness Teachers and can count toward yearly retreat attendance.
