VSI MONTHLY MEDITATION RETREAT - GUIDED & SILENT MEDITATION

On the 4th Saturday of every month, VSI (Vipassana Support International) offers a day of meditation.

Guided meditation & instructions in the morning & after lunch - otherwise periods of silent sitting with the option for walking meditation practice.

Opportunity to meet with facilitators to discuss personal practice.

(There is a suggested donation of $30/day, $15/half day.)

Bring lunch for optional eating meditation. Come for all or part of the day.

All facilitators are trained by SHINZEN YOUNG whose contemporary, innovative & scientific "Basic Mindfulness" system is presently being studied by Harvard, Yale, and other prestigious institutions.

But ALL ARE WELCOME - regardless of what kind of meditation you practice.  Most facilitators are versed in several methods and will strive to help you use mindfulness to reduce discomfort & increase happiness in your life.

    It was a wonderful experience. I met lovely, beautiful people. I was amazed at how much street noise I was able to embrace. The space is very nurturing.

      Hi Regina, Usually, after the morning guidance from 9-10am, it is silent sitting (30 min sits) till lunch (at 12:30 or 1pm) and then the afternoon is usually all silent till a loving kindness meditation at the end of the day. Sometimes there is a short guided meditation after lunch. It depends on who is leading the day. The entire day is in "noble silence" - i.e. no talking aloud (except for guided meditations.) Hope that answers your question. Steph

      Thanks so much Stephanie, I'm looking forward to it. I want to do more silent meditation in a group setting.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
