~Five Day Online Silent Meditation Retreat~
Online Silent Retreat with Kate Mitcheom and Lucia McBee
April 03, 2022 06:00 PM ET – April 08, 2022 10:00 AM ET
IDEAL FOR: Beginners/Intermediate practitioners.
This is a silent retreat.
This retreat qualifies for teaching training pathway.
Wisdom and compassion are foundational to mindfulness practice. Wisdom- direct perception of truth- begins with knowing the body. Compassion allows for direct perception, painful at times, to be viewed through the lens of a kind heart. In this 5-day silent retreat we will investigate the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, using embodied practices of stillness and movement, formal and informal.
An extended silent retreat is an opportunity to cultivate and embody awareness and compassion, supported by teachers and the teachings, and is appropriate for beginners or experienced meditators. The retreat will mirror a residential silent retreat and offering LIVE, daily instruction, daily Dharma talks and teacher support, community building in silence online through practice – book ended by opportunities to connect in small groups at the beginning and the end of the retreat. Silent periods of sitting, walking meditation and yoga will support a personal and embodied understanding of the theoretical teachings. An emphasis will be placed on movement practices and accessible yoga that focus on the inter-play between the mind and body.
Registration for this Retreat is through Copper Beach Institute.
