Due to Covid conditions, the retreat has been modified from residential format to daily life/on-line format, to allow for participation from your home. The format will be similar to the May and November 2020 retreats. There will be a daily meditation schedule for you to follow, and evening meditation and Dharma talks, via Skype. The retreat will allow for full or part-time participation, so that you will be able to weave it into home life, accommodating various daily activities including work, child care, family life, etc. The retreat format will provide a good opportunity for retreat, as well as integrating the practice of mindfulness into everyday life.
You will need to work out beforehand with your home/daily life situation how you are able to participate, i.e. following the daily schedule fully for the duration of the retreat, or for a few days, or partial days such as for morning meditations and evening meditations and Dharma talks, or whatever works for you.
The retreat will be held from Friday, April 30 (7 p.m.) to Saturday, May 8 (noon). We will be entering into the spirit of retreat for the week together, with clear intention and commitment to practice, to follow the schedule as we are able to, while also accommodating the needs of home life and daily activities, using those activities as an opportunity to cultivate mindfulness, presence throughout the week in whatever we are doing.
