The retreat format draws from the Mindfulness teachers of Vietnam­ese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and from the Theravada Thai Forest tradition of tranquility and insight meditation. This retreat is appropriate for those newer to Mindfulness meditation and for experienced practitioners. The retreat will be held in Noble Silence and will include sitting and walking meditation, a Dharma talk each day, group interviews with a teacher and Qigong.
