Overnight Retreat with Jon Aaron and Elaine Retholtz
June 12, 2018 05:00 PM - June 17, 2018 01:00 PM

IDEAL FOR: Experienced

Our life unfolds like music from an orchestra. We respond or react depending on the tonality in any given moment. Over time, we gain a fixed interpretation of this music, and expect it to continue to unfold in a similar way according to our tastes and preferences. We are thrown off base when a discordant note arrives. Through practice, though, we learn to improvise and begin to realize that riffing off the discordant can create beauty.

The spaciousness of this five-day silent retreat will provide the opportunity to cultivate presence, equanimity and balance to face the uncertainties that life sends our way. 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.

Much of our time will be spent engaged in sitting and walking meditation with periods of mindful movement. The teachers will provide meditation instruction and guidance along with daily talks.

Tuition is $600 plus accommodations.
