City Meditation Retreat: "Awakening to Basic Goodness" (Weekthun)

with Jenny Warwick
December 14 / 8:30 AM - December 21 / 9:00 PM

The retreat, which is open to all, includes sitting and walking meditation, Shamatha yoga, Oryoki-style contemplative meals, interviews with meditation instructors, small group discussions, a daily outdoor walk and contemplative talks given by Acharya Warwick.

We will make every effort to billet out-of-town participants with local community members. 

Robin Rieck will lead the Oryoki meals and provide training in this delightful mindfulness approach at the beginning of the retreat. There is also a YouTube video that shows the practice of Oryoki available for viewing before the retreat. 

This retreat will deepen your experience and appreciation of meditation, discipline, and insight. 

Although meat will be served with some of the meals, there will always be a vegetarian alternative. If you have particular diet requirements, please contact Robin Rieck as soon as possible.

This retreat is limited to 20 participants. Please register early to reserve your place.

Cost for the week is $250.00, which includes the two daily Oryoki meals.
