About The Event
All of us long for true refuge: a place of safety where we can feel well and at ease. We often seek this refuge outside of ourselves in relationships, geography or possessions. While all of these can provide something, it turns out the best place to find true refuge is in our own heart and mind. Join us to explore the Buddha’s path to well-being and happiness through meditation and Dharma.
We will be practicing insight meditation in silence together, engaging in mindfulness while sitting, walking, eating, working, and doing all activities. There will be guided instruction and Dharma talks. You will be asked to let go of relationships, communication, phone, technology, reading, writing, recreational drugs, and alcohol during our retreat. See what you can find when all these are set aside.
