Event description

Description

These short retreats will be spent meditating outdoors in the natural beauty of Southwest Montana. Whether it is listening to the soothing sounds of a river or sitting graced in the stillness of aspen trees, we will open to the profound serenity and wisdom of nature.

Participants will learn about the practice of Mindfulness – the capacity to be present to ourselves and our environment and then learn how to apply this receptivity to developing a contemplative relationship with nature. By cultivating this inner quiet and open curious spirit outdoors we can learn from nature as the ultimate teacher, and both deepen our connection and appreciation of the earth in which we live, while learning how to take these lessons into our everyday life.

During this experiential retreat, there will be nature-based meditations and talks on meditation and nature. There will be time to relish in the silence outdoors and opportunity to explore and discuss the practice of meditation in nature.

To support the meditation process, retreats of all lengths will be done in silence with guidance. Participants will enter silence together at the start of the retreat, after introductions. There will be opportunities for questions and group discussion and your teacher is committed to being available to you if you need to talk with them at anytime.

This short retreat is appropriate for beginners and experienced meditators. Whether you are curious about meditation, mindfulness, and how to deepen your connection to the natural world, or you simply recognize the need for some silent time to reconnect with yourself, these short retreats are for you! Be prepared for unexpected delight, mystery, silence and illumination.
