Deepen your mindfulness meditation practice with a 7-day slient mindfulness meditation retreat guided by teachers from the Mindfulness Center at Brown University.

Mindfulness meditation can help you access deep, innate resources for healing, growth, and transformation. It offers the possibility of a healthy way to be in relationship with the inevitable joys and challenges of life, and can give you freedom from stress, anxiety, pain, and illness.

In this silent retreat in the Insight Meditation tradition, led by teachers from the Mindfulness Center at Brown University, you are skillfully guided into an investigation into the inner workings of your mind and body through daily teachings on sitting meditation, walking meditation, and the principles of contemplative practice. You also receive clear guidance for how to be in silence and learn the key Buddhist psychological concepts behind all mindfulness-based programs.

Throughout the week, you practice accessing moment-to-moment awareness in your daily activities as well as in the natural world. In individual and group practice discussions, you deepen understanding and strengthen your own personal practice while cultivating your innate capacity for resilience and insight.

This retreat is suitable for anyone wishing to deepen a mindfulness practice. It may also be of interest to those teaching or aspiring to teach mindfulness in healthcare, psychology, education, science, government, or other business or corporate settings.
