Event Details

How do we keep our hearts open in face of the overwhelming suffering we see in the world?
This retreat will offer you the time, the space, and practices to give your body and mind the opportunity to settle and find freedom in the midst of this suffering.
This six-day silent retreat offers a rich program of guided meditations, instructions, sitting and walking meditations, individual meetings with the teachers and open dharma inquiry sessions. There will be talks each evening that will offer insights into how the liberating wisdom teachings of the Buddha can provide understanding into our experiences of the world and ourselves.


Each day will also offer the opportunity to embody the heart practices through Mindful Dance sessions with music. These sessions are adapted from Biodanza, a movement methodology that supports dancing with life and reconnecting with our vitality, joy, and the pleasure of living.
Haven’t tried mindful dance before? These are testimonials from the Deepening into Stillness Retreat 2024, which included mindful dance:

‘I can’t imagine the retreat without it! I looked forward to it every night. It was a nice way to joyfully connect with people silently, and it helped solidify the days learnings’

‘The mindful movement sessions provided experiential learning that made the Darma sessions resonate with me’

‘Mindful Dance provided an opportunity to quieten the mind through movement, to connect with others through movement, and to experience a sense of lightness and joy.’

‘Rather than distracting from the mindful experience of stillness, it enhanced the experience’

‘mindful dance provided a wonderful opportunity for insight and breakthroughs in understanding’

‘Mindful dance added a richness to the practice where you get to play around with embodying different states and beautifully compliments the other meditation practices on retreat. A playpen to connect with yourself in ways that are creative, expressive and most of all really fun! I haven’t laughed, cried and moved like that in a very long time. It felt liberating and deeply meaningful’
