Start Date: Saturday, June 22, 2013
End Date: Monday, July 1, 2013
The intention of this intensive retreat is to create an atmosphere conducive to extended meditation with the fewest external distractions. Retreat participants will have no rota jobs or responsibilities so they can focus completely on their meditation practice. An emphasis on the collective aspect of practice using the five precepts is woven into the fabric of this retreat.
Participants will have the opportunity for daily, individual conversations with retreat leaders about their meditation practice.
Participants are welcome to tent on the grounds.
Meals will be light and snacks will be provided. After a brief introduction, and a question and answer period the first evening, we will be in Noble Silence until the morning of the final day.
At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.
