The Sitting in Beauty retreat is an intensive 5-day silent meditation program that emphasizes mindfulness meditation’s deep understanding and practice in its most universal and secular expression. In this retreat, we will explore the journey of opening and softening through periods of sitting and walking meditation practice, gentle movement exercises, and talks by senior teachers to deepen the understanding of the practice. Each afternoon, there will be a period of time to rest or take a walk around the land of Drala Mountain Center.
While participants will be in silence for the majority of the retreat, there will also be an opportunity to meet with a teacher to discuss your meditation practice.
Prior experience with a personal meditation practice is recommended.
