Join us at our beautiful and tranquil mountain hilltop setting in southeastern Santa Fe for an Introduction to Meditation Retreat, designed to be welcoming and manageable for people who are new to meditation, as well as for those with some experience who want to deepen their practice. This retreat is ideal for letting participants go deeper into stillness and quiet, and reflecting on their lives from a deeper and more balanced perspective. Participants are treated to delicious, organic meals prepared on premises from greens and vegetables, when in season, grown on MCZC grounds.
The weekend will help acclimate participants to extended periods of meditation, and will cover all basic aspects of establishing a personal meditation practice: not just seated mediation, but walking meditation, and interaction with a teacher, as well as the support offered by communal practice. There will also be some work practice and yoga.
Experienced practitioners can also enjoy this weekend of extended sitting. Refresh and renew with this brief retreat. Click here for a sample schedule.
