Lovingkindness and Mindfulness Meditation Retreat

The retreat is a unique opportunity to deepen the practices of lovingkindness and mindfulness in one the most beautiful alpine regions of the Rocky Mountains. All of us who work so hard to relieve suffering inwardly and outwardly need to learn the actual nuts and bolts of how to practice deep compassion balanced with true equanimity. This special meditation retreat is structured to gradually introduce the practice of mindfulness and lovingkindness as well as the practice of compassion and equanimity.

The retreat day is spent in silent meditation and includes group sitting periods alternating with walking meditation outdoors. In addition to individual interviews with the teachers, there is a nightly discourse from the teachings of the Buddha. To cultivate the meditation process, complete silence is maintained at all times throughout the retreat except during teacher interviews. No previous meditation experience is required to participate and the retreat is suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners.
