Winter Weekthün II
December 26, 2021–January 2, 2022
This program has been cancelled.
Dathün (Tibetan for “month session”) is a month-long group meditation retreat led by a senior teacher. Join us in the pristine stillness of winter in the mountains for one or two weeks of deep meditation in community. Let yourself be supported by the beauty of the natural world and the kindness of fellow meditators in group retreat, making the ideal conditions to settle the mind and open the heart.
This retreat time will be an immersive experience into mindfulness and awareness. In the meditation hall we will practice sitting and walking meditation, and have guided meditations and dharma talks from senior teachers. We will have periods of silence and eat meals in a contemplative style. Our practices will also go beyond the meditation hall and use every aspect of daily life in retreat as an opportunity to wake up and connect with the world around us. We will bring this into light chores that support the retreat.
See the difference a meditation retreat can make: these before and after photos speak volumes! Give yourself the precious gift of retreat.
