Give yourself one day for meditation — a day to still the 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 one-day retreats regularly can help renew the strength of their daily practice.


Overnight Stay

If you are coming via public transportation, it may be difficult to find a train or bus that will get you here in time for the 8:45 am check-in time. That being the case, you are welcome to come the night before and stay over in our dormitory, PROVIDED YOU CAN ARRIVE NO LATER THAN 8:30 pm. (If you must arrive later than that, there are motels and hotels in the area where you might stay.)

Overnight stay costs an additional $25 per night, and includes breakfast (and dinner if applicable).

Because we have limited laundry facility, we ask that you bring your own sheets and blanket. If you bring a sleeping bag, please also bring a fitted sheet to protect our mattress covers.
