Retreat for a Day, Retreat for Life
Saturday, January 9, 2021, 9AM-4PM (US Eastern Time)
with Margaret Fletcher

In this daylong silent retreat, we will cultivate the intention and capacity for being present, aware and attuned to life as it is continually unfolding. You will be invited to give yourself time, space, and curiosity about the practice of sustained silence. A commitment to welcome all of who you are, while holding to a high standard of formal practice, will create the container for group practice. Together, we’ll explore the experience of participating in a guided silent retreat.

The day will conclude with time to reflect on the potential for further time in sustained practice, and to speak together about the value and challenges of time on retreat. Designed for graduates of the MBSR or MBCT course (or for those who have an established formal mindfulness practice), this silent retreat is for anyone who is wondering about the role of extended retreat time in their overall mindfulness practice.

This retreat is led by Margaret Fletcher.

During this retreat you will:

  • Practice mindfulness intentionally from the space of your own home
  • Live through an extended day with the intention to befriend yourself, your life and this world, simply and fully
  • Engage with the particular kind of guidance and teaching offered on retreat
  • Explore what nourishes you and what challenges you in the experience of intentional silence and awareness
  • Participate in dialogue with other retreat participants around the potential of sustained time on retreat

This retreat is open to graduates of the MBSR or MBCT course, as well as those with an established mindfulness practice.
