This is a precious time for mindfulness practice and a rare opportunity to cultivate and deepen wisdom and compassion.

Retreats emphasize continuity of mindfulness and the refinement of precise open awareness. They are conducted in Noble Silence.

Each retreat involves a great deal of organization and both organizers and teachers commit to ensure that the retreat is beneficial for all Yogis.  The stability of a retreat is dependent upon participants arriving on time and not leaving until the full retreat has finished. This helps management in getting everyone settled and helps with the continuity of yogi jobs.  More importantly however are the Spiritual aspects of the retreat. Teachers find that Yogis get more benefit if they participate in the complete retreat, that means being present for the opening Dhamma Talk and Instructions and being part of the Closing Ceremonies.
