Regular periods of sustained meditation practice are an important element in cultivating and deepening meditative skill and maturity. SIM’s monthly one-day retreats are an opportunity to step out of the stress and demands of our daily life, restore the body and the mind, and develop our meditation practice. Each Saturday retreat begins with a period of mindful movement that can be done by anyone, regardless of their current physical condition. This is followed by periods of sitting and walking meditation, questions and answers on meditation practice, lunch and a rest period, a talk on a selected topic, and a discussion. We encourage participation for the full day of practice on these Saturdays. Bring your lunch and plan to stay on-site. If circumstances only allow for your attendance for a half day—either the morning or afternoon—please come. Let the instructor leading the day know that you will be leaving early.
