Our monthly Half-Day Meditation Retreats are designed for new meditators, people who want to sit for a longer period of time without attending a full retreat, and an opportunity for experienced students to cultivate their practice. We'll have periods of sitting and walking meditation, and time for discussion and Q&A. This month’s retreat is led by IDP teacher Leslie Joren Wagner and Manaslu Gurung.
Scientific research indicates that practicing meditation regularly has many benefits, including a stress relief, anxiety management, and better concentration and focus. You can read more about this here and here.
Beginners are welcome. Chairs and cushions will be provided.
