This non-residential insight meditation retreat begins with a retreat day on Sunday, May 24, from 10 am-5 pm, followed by early morning and evening meditation sessions from Monday to Friday. The retreat ends at 9 am on Friday, May 29.

Weekday sessions include meditation each morning at 7:00 am followed by the presentation of a dharma theme for practice and inquiry each day. In the evenings at 5:30 pm is dinner, followed by meditation and a dharma talk and discussion. The emphasis is on bringing the practice into normal daily life activities through mindfulness and inquiry, with an exploration of various themes relevant to daily life. The retreat includes sitting, walking, and standing meditation, Buddhist teachings and discussions. This retreat is suitable for beginners that would like an introduction to meditation and for those who wish to deepen their current practice.

The shared breakfasts and dinners provide opportunities for further discussion as well as sangha (community) building.
