Event description

Description

Daily meditation instructions, sustained moment-to-moment practice, and a silent environment will all support participants in beginning again for the New Year. The course includes a full daily schedule of sitting and walking practice, lying down and standing meditation, daily mindful hatha yoga, and evening talks. On the first evening and the last morning there will be opportunities for group dialogue about practice. During the retreat there will be brief meetings with the teacher to discuss practice.

For info about the facility and images of the welcoming accomodations (comfortable, simple, contemporary shared guest rooms and baths), visit spiritfireretreatcenter.com.

The food will be vegetarian, with gluten free and dairy free options available.

Course size is limited to 14, which will provide a wonderful, intimate atmosphere for this powerfully introspective mindfulness program.

The retreat begins with a buffet dinner on December 28th at 5:30 p.m. and concludes with lunch at 12pm on January 2nd, 2019. Please plan to arrive between 2:30 and 5:00PM on the 28th to allow time for settling in.

This retreat fulfils the UMass CFM Oasis Institute requirement for silent retreats. That said, the program is not limited to Oasis trainees; anyone who wishes to engage in a silent mindfulness retreat is welcome to attend.

Note: This is a silent retreat, which means the intention is to make a full-on commitment to be present. The program will include practice sessions that start at 6am and run through 9pm. You are asked to be in silence and turn off your cell phone from the start of the retreat to the end (except in the case of an emergency).

Until December 1st cancellation will result in a full refund minus a $75 processing fee.
