Women’s Summer Meditation and Yoga Retreat
August 4–8, 2021
Our bodies hold emotions, images, patterns, and stories. When we inhabit our bodies through mindfulness practices, we come to know ourselves as complete and wakeful beings. During this rejuvenating program, we will play with the four postures of meditation, practice nourishing yoga, and retreat in the forests, fields, and groves of Shambhala Mountain Center. Through sitting meditation, we will contemplate the nature of Way-Seeking Mind, the tender under-world of our being. Our practice and insight will deepen through silent periods, and our community will develop understanding and trust through conversation. Trans women, genderqueer women, and female-identified non-binary people are welcome.
This retreat takes place in a scenic pavilion among the pine trees—an indoor/outdoor space—and is limited to a small group of women.
Please review and understand SMC’s current COVID-19 policy before visiting SMC.
