Still I Rise – An Insight Meditation Retreat for People of Color, Spirit Rock Meditation Center
Dharma practice offers us a way to develop a deep and abiding freedom beyond external conditions and changing circumstances. In this silent, intensive meditation retreat, we will be practicing sitting and walking meditation as well as cultivating mindfulness in our daily activities. Our practice will be supported by dharma talks, yoga practice, group meetings and Q & A with teachers. We will have a special focus on the theme of self love, healing and liberation.
Open to self-identified people of color at all levels of meditation experience. All participants observe Noble Silence throughout the program. You will be asked to let go and refrain from all your communication and technology devices as well as to refrain from communicating with your fellow practitioners. In addition, participants will be required to attend the entire duration of the retreat; NO late arrivals, early departures or partial attendance.
In addition to the registration fees, which only cover a portion of the retreat costs, you are invited to support the teachings and the retreat through the spiritual practice of Generous Giving or “Dana. Our communities’ practice of generous support has sustained this retreat for 19 years, and is so greatly appreciated by all of our communities.
