Retreats are an invitation to nurture a continuity of mindfulness. This Retreat for New Retreatants is an opportunity for those who have little or no retreat experience to practice for a full day of mindfulness in the company of others who are new to retreats. The schedule will include meditation instructions, how to be on retreat, as well as shorter sitting and walking meditation sessions. This day will be mainly in silence. There will be adequate time for discussion including how to sustain practice in daily life.
