Insight Meditation Community of Charlottesville is offering a 4-day silent meditation retreat at Serenity Ridge Retreat Center in Nelson County. Senior teachers Susan Stone and Ron Vereen will lead this retreat.
At this retreat, we will practice stopping, settling into stillness, and taking refuge in ourselves —our own potential for Awakening. Utilizing Noble Silence and the familiar Three Refuges as our support — the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha — we will engage with a variety of mindfulness practices (sitting, walking, mindful movement, inquiry, chanting, mindful speaking and listening) to reveal the stillness that is already here. We will discover that to simply stop and be with ourselves as we are is our gateway to freedom.
