Description

Half-Day Meditation Retreat

Join us for a half day of silent meditation practice. Learn how to cultivate mindfulness--knowing what is happening within you and around you, so you can respond skillfully and with awareness--and how to bring the benefits of meditation practice into daily life.

By deepening our awareness through an extended period of meditation practice, we can let the mind settle, gently notice the habits of our mind, and meet our experience with a genuine sense of groundedness and kindness.

The day will consist of periods of sitting meditation, walking meditation, gentle stretching and yoga (suitable for all abilities), periods of silent practice, and time to ask questions and discuss meditation within a supportive community.

Some experience with meditation recommended. If you are brand new to meditation and want to know if this retreat is right for you, contact mindfulastoria@gmail.com.

Chairs and yoga mats will be provided, though you may bring a meditation cushion or bench if you prefer.

Participants are asked to keep their phones off or on silent for duration of the retreat.


Please wear comfortable clothing. Bring a water bottle and anything else you might need to be comfortable.

If you have any questions, please email mindfulastoria@gmail.com.


Space is limited to 15 participants. Register early to reserve your spot.

Tuition: $30
