Four-Night Silent Retreat:
Coming Home to Kindness

With Jon Aaron and Elaine Retholtz

June 13–17, 2018

Shoreline Campus (Madison)

 

IDEAL FOR: Experienced (intermediate and advanced)

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 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. Much of our time will be spent engaged in sitting and walking meditation with periods of mindful movement. Each day, the teachers will offer talks and individual meetings.

This retreat is open to anyone with prior meditation experience, especially with Mindful Self-Compassion, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, or other mindfulness meditation experience.

Tuition is $500 plus accommodations.
