Retreat Dharma Talks

Young Adult Insight Meditation Retreat

Come practice silent mindfulness and Insight Meditation for a week in a group of your peers. Give yourself a break from constant overstimulation and external demands as we create a supportive space for cultivating greater inner calm, spaciousness, and presence.

We will honor each person’s experience through radical self-awareness and deeper embodiment, exploring the ancient practices of guided and silent sitting, walking, heart meditations, movement, practice meetings with teachers, and Dharma talks. Over the course of the week, we will extend these practices until the entire day is one of steady, continuous awareness.

On the last day of the retreat we practice coming in and out of silence to learn conscious connection with the community around us. This is a fully silent retreat, and you will be asked to turn off and put away all electronic devices.

This retreat is silent except for teacher-led Q&A, small groups, or other practice meetings.
