Thursday Sitting Group 7-8PM

This group meets every week.

We meditate for 45 minutes and

Dennis gives a brief talk at the end.


All Day Retreats

One Day Saturday Retreats provide an opportunity for extended silent group practice. We conclude our silence at the end of the day with time to acknowledge our community and interconnection, to share our experiences, and to reflect on integrating mindfulness into our lives. Participating for the whole day is encouraged, but if that is not possible, coming for the morning is an option. Please bring your own lunch and sitting equipment (cushions etc.) or use chairs provided.

We arrive at 9:15 and begin silence at 9:30.

Our sitting meditation periods are 45 minutes, alternating with 30 minute walking periods.

Half day attendees leave 12:30.

We enjoy a silent mindful lunch and

resume sitting at 1:45. Dennis gives a talk at 3PM and

we conclude the day about 5PM.
