Our Nine-day “Experiments in Wisdom” Silent Retreat at Angel’s Rest

P1050040

Our thanks to Jennifer and the staff at Angel’s Rest Retreat Center near Leyden, Mass. for providing the perfect outer conditions for our excursion into the fusion of Stillness and Insight meditation practices.

Our crew of well-seasoned and beginning meditators traveled from Argentina, Tucson, Detroit, North Carolina, New York City,  as well as Gloucester and other Massachusetts coastal villages to spend nine-days in silent retreat exploring the truth of their own experience with “The Four Applications of Mindfulness.”  In up to 18 24-minute sessions each day they practiced stabilizing attention with the breath and settling awareness in the space of the mind.

We already have an expanded two-week retreat planned for April 2015 with weekend and one-week options. Stay tuned for details.
