Give yourself two days to still your mind.
This silent retreat is non-intensive; the simple and relaxed schedule allows you to settle your mind while at the same time allowing you to maintain a constant awareness of your every activity.
Sitting periods are thirty minutes. In between sittings you are guided in gentle yoga and walking meditation.
The retreat also offers a review of basic meditation methods such as breath awareness, as well as brief Dharma talks.
Most people find that attending these two-day retreats regularly can help renew the strength of their daily practice.
