Explore Stillness: 1/2 Day or Whole Day Silent Retreat Saturday, Nov. 3

You are invited  to practice meditation and mindfulness at a deeper level.  In the midst of our busy lives, a day of silence gives us the opportunity to “reset.”

You may come for the full day or a half day. The retreat will be in Noble Silence which means that there will be no conversation or talking.  The exception will be for questions about the practices or talks.  During lunch we will designate an area for those wishing to talk quietly and those who wish to remain in silence.  Please plan on turning off your cell phone during the retreat.  If you need to you can leave the room to use your phone at lunch. Suggested donation is $20.00 for the full day ($15.00 students), or $10.00 for the 1/2 day, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Questions? Please contact us through the website response. Hope you can join us!
