These are "half-day" and "full-day" retreats intended to provide more intensive practice opportunities to interested dhamma practitioners. It is open to all levels of practice, beginners to experienced, a sangha to support everyone in our effort to establish and incorporate practice into our daily lives.
Retreats consist of alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation, guided meditation instruction when needed, dhamma teachings and a dhamma discussion at the end. Participants are asked to undertake the Five Training Precepts during the retreat with Noble Silence instead of Right Speech until the dhamma discussion when we shall revert to Right Speech.
If you are needed to stay in touch with others between 12:30 and 5:30, please consider coming on another day.
Refreshments are offered at the retreat manager's discretion. Healthy snacks and/or drinks can also be brought and shared by participants during the post-talk sangha discussion.
As with all traditional Buddhist teachings there is never a charge for attending but people are encouraged to practice dana in the form of financial, labor, or material donations. All Souls is also foregoing any fee for the retreats.
RSVP is requested but not necessary.
