Five-Night Silent Retreat: Coming Home to Kindness
With Beth Mulligan and Jon Aaron
Tuesday, October 3 to 8, 2017
IDEAL FOR: Intermediate and Advanced Levels
Co-sponsored by the Center for Mindful Self Compassion (MSC), this retreat fulfills the prerequisite for MSC teachers and other Mindfulness-Based interventions such as MBSR And MBCT. This retreat is open to all who want to deepen their connection with mindfulness and compassion practice.
A silent retreat is a vital way to nourish our personal meditation practice. It is life-enhancing for everyone who attends and particularly important for those who work with mindfulness-based interventions. This retreat will be based on the life-changing and well-researched work of Christopher Germer and Kristin Neff, creators of the Mindful Self Compassion Program, as well as ancient wisdom practice from several traditions. This is an opportunity to renew and deepen your practice of compassion and mindfulness meditation, and live fully in a strong, supportive, and beautiful environment enhanced by silence with the support of experienced teachers. Our attention during this retreat will be on how we can build our resilience and enhance our capacity to meet challenges with equanimity, strength, and compassionate awareness.
Program Details: Much of our time will be spent engaged in sitting and walking meditation with periods of mindful movement. The teachers will offer daily talks and individual meetings, and highlight the foundations of MSC. This retreat is open to anyone with prior meditation experience, especially with MSC, MBSR or other mindfulness meditation experience.
Tuition is $660 plus accommodations.The retreat begins Tuesday, October 3 at 5 p.m. with an all-levels yoga class and concludes around 1 p.m. on Sunday, October 8.
