The simple and relaxed schedule allows you to settle your mind while at the same time allowing you to maintain a constant silent awareness of your every activity.

This retreat also includes brief Dharma talks, guided meditations, and a review of basic meditation methods such as breath awareness and total mind-body relaxation.
