I just figured out I've supported at least 25 of our residential retreats since I've moved down to DC. It's the best game in town.
It's never less than awe-inspiring to take this deep dive into self-inquiry with so many dedicated and sincere practitioners.
This practice is not for the feint of heart. No reading, writing and no speaking except for two short interviews during the week.
Hours and hours and hours of sitting and walking meditation with some optional chi gong in the morning and yoga in the afternoon. The food was great, the weather supportive and the grounds are beautiful for walking and meditating outdoors.
If you're on for a transformative journey, do consider joining one. The next is the New Year's Retreat. More at IMCW.
