Women in Meditation

Held within the classical context of silence and simplicity, a powerful sense of community develops and this supports our emergent capacity for deepening wisdom and compassion. Through sustained insight meditation practice that includes sitting and walking as well as mindful movement, we share in daily talks, instructions, guided metta (boundless friendliness) practice, and meetings with the teachers.

This annual gathering has a long tradition of intergenerational inclusivity. We all learn from one another in the midst of the strengths and insecurities pertaining to our generation. Younger participants enjoy and appreciate the experience and wisdom of the older ones, and the older ones tend to love the freshness and wisdom of the younger women.

Suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, this retreat is open to anyone who identifies as a woman, including cis, trans, and more.
