Slow and Steady: Daylong Retreat

  • Spirit Rock Meditation Center 5000 Sir Francis Drake Boulevard Woodacre, CA, 94973 United States (map)

Establishing Successful Meditation Techniques

The path of practice taught by the Buddha involves a slow and steady cultivation of the mind. The benefits of mindfulness and contemplative practice are real, tangible, and can be experienced by anyone who practices with proper guidance. 

Yet to experience these benefits directly we need to take time in our life to practice. We must give our minds the right conditions for the powers of wisdom and concentration to grow, which includes refining our understanding of the teachings and ensuring that we are using the techniques properly. 

In this daylong retreat, we will nourish our capacities for clear seeing and inner steadiness and deepen the foundations of mindfulness practice by giving careful attention to the body, the breath, feelings, and the mind. Our program will include opportunities for personal guidance with your meditation practice, question and answer sessions, Dharma reflections, as well as periods of sitting and walking meditation. This daylong retreat is appropriate for both beginning meditators and experienced students alike.
