Noble Silence Meditation Retreat USA

Imagine the peace that comes with a weekend of silence. No insistent beeps and buzzes demanding immediate attention. No distracting debates about the state of the world. No pressure to be witty or wise. Only the opportunity to be present with yourself, and the opening to mindfully observe and release the thoughts and emotions that arise. As we move into the holiday season, silence serves as a way to ground yourself - setting a solid foundation for the coming festivities.

Program

Life has been quite insistent recently - and the upcoming holiday season will only amplify that pressure. Seize a moment for yourself, before the onslaught. No devices. No conversations. No scattered inputs demanding your attention.

Create space for your mind to calm, space to harness the power of meditation, protected from the distractions and stressors of daily life. By centering yourself, you will be better prepared for the coming weeks.

After dinner Friday night, you will be asked to relinquish your cell phone and the silence begins. Between group meditation sessions - both sitting and walking - you can take contemplative walks around the property, meditate on your own, or use a journal to explore your inner landscape.

There will be an opportunity each day for group or one-on-one conversations with the teacher to discuss goals and uncover roadblocks. Group silence creates an atmosphere of deep tranquility and with it the ability to rest in the present moment.

Together, you collectively deepen your meditation practices, and enjoy a rare chance for self-inquiry, insight, and the possibility of inner transformation.

Please give loved ones the Dharmakaya Center main number as an emergency contact.
