ABOUT THIS WEEK-LONG RETREAT 

Mindfulness is the practice of being fully aware and present for one’s life, now.  Mindfulness can free us from the painfully repetitive, anxiety-driven fictions we dream of the past and future.  It can bring us to greater intelligence and clarity of mind and to greater compassion … for others and for ourselves.

While having a daily practice and attending weekly sessions and classes are important, “retreating” from the speed and habits of life gives us a rare opportunity to deepen our practice and understanding.  

In this intensive meditation retreat, daily talks and guided meditations will focus on the Buddha’s core teaching on meditation, The Four Foundations of Mindfulness. In particular, our focus will be on the unique interpretation of these presented by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Additionally, we will reference two traditional interpretations presented by Joseph Goldstein and B. Alan Wallace.

Days will consist of alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation; guided meditations, short dharma talks, readings focused on the techniques, and interviews with the teachers. The first half of the program will be held in silence until the closing bell in the evening; thereafter in silence until lunch-time. Meals will be served buffet-style and will be primarily vegetarian.  

The retreat will be led by John Baker, Jane Kolleeny and Derek Kolleeny, all of whom are experienced dharma teachers, authorized by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in the Kagyu-Nyingma traditions of Tibetan Buddhism (see the Westchester Buddhist Center website for bios).  As students of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, John, Jane and Derek emphasize experiential Buddhism, which develops as meditation practice deepens, both on the meditation cushion and in one’s daily life. 

Westchester Buddhist Center was formed in early 2009 from the inspiration to share the Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist and Shambhala teachings and meditation practices presented in the West by the Tibetan meditation master and scholar, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
