buddhaatwindowCome and experience a day of quiet meditation on a long summer’s day. The Silence and Stillness retreat is a one day retreat dedicated to building a meditation practice. We will provide the time and space for growing a meaningful personal practice. This retreat is suitable for all levels, although most beneficial for anyone who has taken an Introduction to Meditation class. After the introductory portion of the day, we will be in silence, with light instruction, until the concluding discussion at the end of the day. There will be opportunities for individual meditation review meetings in the afternoon. Lunch and snacks will be provided.

* 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.

* Retreat participants are asked to work together to prepare and clean up after meals and to help with general cleanup at the end of the retreat.
