Description

SILENCE & SOLITUDE: 1/2 Day Silent Retreat

Join us for a 1/2 Day Silent Retreat. Cultivate awareness and presence in community and solidarity -- with no obligation of small talk or introductions, free of judgments, and full of self-compassion. This day is about you, it is for you, and it is the ultimate self-care. No cell phones, no texting, no internet. Safety measures have been established so you can freely put your phone away for 6 FULL BLISSFUL HOURS.

INTENTIONS:

slow down. breathe. reflect. recalibrate intention.

Promote wellness and compassion in your daily life. Quiet the negative inner voice that inhibits peace and happiness. Give yourself the tools to reduce stress and deepen your practice. Invite yourself to a half-day of silence to journey inward - in community, nourish the body, mind & spirit with:

  • Zen meditation
  • Walking Meditation (Kinhin)
  • Yoga Nidra
  • Journaling
  • Gazing Meditation (Trataka)
  • Loving-Kindness Meditation (Metta)
  • Nourishing Meal & Snack

THE RETREAT IS PERFECT FOR...

Both beginners and those with previous meditation experience. If you are curious about silent retreats but more than 30 minutes of silence frightens you - this will be a great introduction. If you are an experienced silent retreat practitioner, this will be a great boost to your practice. By participating you are agreeing to honor a space of silence and refrain from engaging in all forms of communication with others during the allotted time. You are welcome to bring your own meditation cushion/blanket and other accoutrements. Wear comfortable clothing (yep…this means stretchy stuff). You are invited to bring your favorite mug, water bottle, and utensils for eating -- as a way to reduce our ecological footprint. Also feel free you bring your journal if this is a practice for you.
