Event description

Description

Deepen your mindfulness practice with a silent meditation retreat. This program is based on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) principles developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn. The practices offered emphasize the ancient roots of MBSR, especially the four ways of establishing mindfulness first taught by the Buddha, often called the four fourndations of mindfulness.

The retreat is open to the public and qualifies as a pre-requisite for MBSR and other mindfulness teacher trainees.

Silent retreat calls forth a full-on commitment to be present, moment-to-moment, through out the program.

This course offers a seamless daily schedule of mindfulness practice sessions from 6am to 9pm. Self care is supported and encouraged through periods of mindful movement, mindful eating, and meetings with the teachers to discuss practice. You are asked to be in silence throughout the week, turning off your cell phone (and other devices) from the start of the retreat to the end (except in the case of an emergency). Reading and writing are also set aside to enhance the simiplicity and quiet that form the mainstays of silent retreat.

For information about and to see pictures of the facility, the beautiful grounds and welcoming accomodations (comfortable, simple, contemporary shared guest rooms and baths), please visit spiritfireretreatcenter.com.

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

Course size is limited to 18, which provides an intimate, low-key atmosphere for this powerfully introspective mindfulness program.

The retreat begins with a buffet dinner on the opening day at 5:30 p.m. and concludes with lunch at 12pm on the closing day. Please plan to arrive between 2:30 and 5:00PM on the opening day to allow time for getting settled into your room and oreinted to the place.

Please note our cancellation policy: Until August 15 cancellation will result in a full refund minus a $95 fee to cover the non-refundable registration site cost. No refunds can be issued on cancellations after August 15.
