This intensive silent retreat for those with previous meditation experience will be an opportunity to deepen the practice and focus on the qualities of the heart. The format will include guided sitting, walking, lying down mindfulness meditations along with gentle yoga, accessible for any level including those new to yoga. There will be opening and closing opportunities for group dialogue, evening talks and brief meetings to discuss and share about the practice.
