Intimacy With Life Retreat

Friday, October 5-Friday, October 12
Jonathan Foust, Ruth King, Pat Coffey and Sebene Selassie

Pearlstone Retreat Center, 5425 Mount Gilead Road, Reisterstown, MD, 21136 (Map It)

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 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. In addition to sitting and walking meditation practice, there will be sessions of mindful movement led each day by Jonathan Foust.

This is a meditation retreat held in noble silence; it is not an interactive workshop.

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

Please find more information about retreats in our Resource section/Residential Retreat Information.

Retreat Managers: La Sarmiento, Janet Merrick
