This retreat will provide a mix of traditional silent meditation practice and relational mindfulness practices in the nurturing landscape of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Together, we will take refuge from the busyness and chaos of our lives to return home to ourselves through the profound teachings of the dharma and reconnecting with the earth. Retreat is a rare and precious opportunity to remember who we are, what matters most, and how to then engage in the world with a clear and steady mind and a generous and compassionate heart to alleviate suffering and cultivate true happiness for the benefit of all beings.
This retreat is suitable for complete beginners and experienced meditators. All are welcome to spend this extended weekend cultivating a sense of deeper connection and belonging within yourself, with others, and within the natural world.
