Arrival day: Arrive between 3-4 pm. For new guests there is an orientation at 4:30 pm. Meditations start at 7 pm. We highly recommend arriving as close to 3 pm as possible to avoid rush hour traffic. Departure day: The retreat ends after morning moving meditation approximately 11:30-12 noon.
Silence: We provide as much outer silence as possible, but we are not responsible for natural noise from the neighbors or community. We do not schedule construction during retreat periods. Once a week, or every other week, landscapers keep up the grounds. As necessary there is cleaning and occasional maintenance at the center. We are cultivating inner silence while doing our best to give our guests an environment of genuine peace and quiet.
Note: People that are physically or emotionally challenged are asked to notify us in advance in order for us to determine if the silent retreat is appropriate. We do not provide psychological therapy or medical treatment. Each client is responsible for their mental and physical welling being during and after their retreat.
