Meditation retreats are an intensive way to deepen practice and grow in our understanding of how to work with the mind, heart and body. Practiced in "noble silence", we alternate between sitting meditation, walking meditation, eating mindfully, and guided Loving Kindness meditation.  We practice insight meditation which cultivates an inner calm through sustained attention (samatha), which in turn helps to create the inner conditions for wise reflection and insight (vipassana).

Appropriate for both beginning level and experienced practitioners, I offer one-day retreats twice a year, and an annual 3-day retreat for women. The fee for the one-day retreat is included as part of 9-session classes. 


Day of Mindfulness Retreat

We’ll practice sitting, walking and eating meditation, all in “noble silence”, and complete the day with the Loving Kindness Meditation (guided). Open to all genders and to anyone who would like this opportunity to deepen their practice. Held in the Quarry Arts Building, 715 Hill Street, Madison. Fee:$30. 

There will be no retreat for the spring of 2020.
