How to Prepare for Your Retreat

Meditation retreats are an invitation to create a space where you can take care of yourself and take time off from your daily life. With the goal of deepening inner calm, silence is an essential tool for this noble exploration of ourselves and allows us to listen deeply in this space of discovery.

For an online retreat at home, it’s important to prepare a supportive environment in advance:

  • Find a clean, quiet place where you can be alone, in silence, without being disturbed.
  • Limit the use of electronic devices to just what you will need for the retreat (phone, laptop, or tablet). If possible, close all apps except for Zoom, deactivate different notifications.

We are aware that the current situation may require that you give attention to those you share your home with, and that you may need to be available for them. Do the best you can to offer yourself a supportive environment for your retreat. Your intention and your commitment are your best supports.

Meditation Supports

  • A chair, cushion or meditation bench for sitting meditation.
  • A blanket or shawl in case you get cold.
  • Water to stay hydrated during the day.

Daily Schedule

Sunday, March 21 from 10 am to 5 pm
