Intimacy With Life

With Tara Brach, Jonathan Foust, Ruth King and Pat Coffey

THE LOTTERY FOR THE SPRING RETREAT HAS CLOSED. RESULTS WILL BE EMAILED THE FIRST WEEK OF FEBRUARY. IF YOU HAVE NOT YET REGISTERED, YOU ARE WELCOME TO REGISTER AND WILL BE PLACED ON THE WAIT LIST.

Vipassana, or Buddhist Meditation, is a way of opening to life and seeing clearly the totality of one’s being and experience. The practice is based on cultivating a present-centered mindfulness, leading to an unfolding of our natural wisdom and compassion.

The focus of this weeklong retreat is to enhance intimacy with ourselves and the world. In order to help participants discover a sense of stillness and deep listening, silence will be maintained throughout the retreat except during question/answer periods and interviews with the teachers. Daily mindful movement sessions will be offered.

Check-in begins @ 4 p.m. on Friday; retreat ends at 12 noon the following Friday with lunch served at 12:30 p.m.

Meals at Pearlstone are lacto-ovo vegetarian. Please note on your registration if you have any special dietary restrictions.
