March Retreat Announcement
This meditation retreat will commence on March 27 for the five-day guests and on March 29 for the three-day guests. The retreat will end at 3pm on March 31.
This retreat is for anyone who wishes to begin a daily meditation practice or wishes to deepen their existing practice. We will draw from international teachers such as Thich Nhat Hahn, Tara Brach, Adyashanti and many more. This basic mindfulness retreat is the prerequisite for our more advanced Samadhi and Non Dual Awareness retreats.
Check-in time begins at 4pm and orientation and practice will begin at 7pm.
All guests must register in advance by calling 352 316-6696 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
A meal plan will be available at cost or guests are welcome to BYO meals with access to our large, fully stocked kitchen. Meal plan arrangements must be made in advance.
Generally, there will be four group practices each full day beginning at 7am, 10:30am, 2pm, 6:30pm. At all other times the meditation hall will be available for continuous meditation. Silence is encouraged at all other times. No computer or cell phone usage is permitted in the common areas.
Activities such as nature walks, hot tubing, basketball and pickle ball are also available during free times.
