5-Day Practice Intensive Online Retreat
with Rebecca Eldridge and Margaret Fletcher
Wednesday to Sunday, December 7 - 11, 2022

Registration Deadline: Monday, November 28, 2022

Community practice is a dedicated way to strengthen living in relationship to others with open heart and clear mind. To this end, the 5-Day Practice Intensive Retreat is a deep dive into mostly silent community practice. Each full day runs from 8am to 8pm. Much time will be spent being lightly guided in traditional mindfulness practices (sitting, walking, scanning, and so on), and there will also be time for rest, hearing teacher talks, taking walks, and so on. A brief one-on-one check-in with a teacher is offered to each retreatant during our time together. You will leave this retreat with renewed spirit for living in a way that honors all of who you are, in a world that asks for nothing less.

Because of the intensity of this retreat, we ask that you have an established mindfulness practice.

During this retreat you will:

  • Undertake silent practice for an extended period from the space of your own home
  • Abide inside your life in a continuous and sustaining way
  • Strengthen connection to others in your solo practice
  • Give and receive support in silent group practice
  • Hear teachings that support integrating practice in everyday life

At the end of this retreat you will:

  • Recognize the effect of a longer period of sustained practice on your being
  • Draw from the experience of practicing awareness and silence in your home setting
  • Leave with a renewed resolve to honor yourself and others

The Practice Intensive Retreat is open to mindfulness practitioners, students and teachers who have an established mindfulness practice.

Note: Participating in this 5-day retreat satisfies the requirement of attending a minimum 3-day, silent, teacher-led retreat before entering the East Coast Mindfulness MBSR Teacher Training Pathway OR attending a 5-day silent, teacher-led retreat prior to engaging in Mentorship Cycle Three.

This retreat is led by Rebecca Eldridge and Margaret Fletcher.
