Intensive Daylong Retreat w/ Gil Fronsdal

Saturday June 4, 6am to 9pm

This is a great opportunity for a full day of immersion in silent Dharma Practice. Practicing mindfulness on retreat is one of the foundations for maturing insight meditation. The simplicity, silence and support of retreats contribute to letting go of many of the distractions that get in the way of clear seeing. Retreats also are a wonderful environment for developing a continuity of awareness for an extended period.
Fifteen minute Interviews with Gil will be available on a sign up basis.
You are welcome to come for the entire day or drop in for any part of the retreat. If you come for only part of the retreat, please enter the meditation hall only at the beginning of a scheduled sitting.  If you come while a sit is in progress, sit in one of the chairs in the outer hall.
Bring breakfast and lunch. Light supper provided. Please note that the kitchen will be under construction during this time. If you bring food from home, please plan to bring your own utensils and wash any containers when you get home. The kitchen will not be available.
