The emphasis will be on bringing mindfulness to all our activities, whether in formal meditation, movement, speaking, listening, or eating. Participants will practice Noble Silence outside of the interactive exercises and recovery-style meetings. All recovery paths are welcome, whether Twelve Step, Recovery Dharma, Refuge Recovery, substance, process, or relationship-oriented.
Mornings will be devoted to silent sitting and walking meditation. Afternoons will include Mindful Dialog workshop along with more silent meditation. Each evening there will be a Dharma talk followed by a 12-Step-style meeting.
THE TEACHER RECEIVES NO FEE. YOU ARE INVITED TO OFFER DANA (generous donations) AT THE END OF RETREAT.
A minimum of 30 days clean and sober is required for attendance.
