Seven Day Meditation Retreat


with Janet Romaine
December 26 / 8:30 AM - January 1 / 9:00 PM

Registration for the full 7 days is CLOSED as of today, December 21. You can still register for 1 or 2 days, but no more than 3.


The practice of sitting meditation slows our torrent of thoughts and distractions and uncovers the stable, clear and potent quality of our mind. This week of meditation will include meetings with meditation instructors, short talks, contemplative lunches, and plenty of time to let your mind rest from the usual hectic pace of life.


Adapted from the Shambhala dathün, the city weekthün is an opportunity for us to connect deeply with meditation while relating it directly with our regular life. We invite practitioners of all levels to join us in this week of spacious mind - for the entire program or for one or more days.


Please indicate which days you plan to attend by adding a note in the 'comment' section of the registration process.
