Awakening Mindfulness: A Silent Meditation Retreat in the Rocky Mountains

Saturday, April 4, 2020 – Saturday, April 11, 2020
7:00 AM – 12:00 PM (MT)

A mindful and openhearted awareness is the gateway to wellbeing, insight, and liberation. During this 7-day silent meditation retreat, we will join together to quiet the mind, heal the heart and see our human life with the eyes of wisdom. The retreat days will include a daily rhythm of sitting, walking, guided meditations, daily teachings, practices of the heart and small groups with the teachers. Held in the high mountains, the retreat will offer a container of care and delicious silence.

Faculty of this retreat will be mentors from the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program: James Baraz, La Sarmiento, and Leslie Booker. Faculty bios are listed on the Teacher page, which can be accessed via the top navigation bar.

Retreat Registration of $795, covers tuition only. Lodging and meals are paid separately.
Staying onsite in residence is mandatory for the retreat to qualify for the prerequisite for MMTCP.
