Monastic Winter Retreat

December 1, 2017 @ 5:00 am - February 25, 2018 @ 10:00 pm

For 2,500 years since the time of the Buddha, monastics have traditionally taken three months every year to meditate and study. This is called the Rains Retreat because it took place in India during the rainy season. in our region the best time to practice is during the winter season. During the Winter Retreat Dharma talks are suspended. Instead, experienced meditators will have the opportunity to deepen their practice with a 10 am sitting, followed by walking meditation, and a second period of sitting. Beginners may receive practice instruction from 10-10:40am, and then join the main group for walking and sitting meditation.
