About This Event

Enjoy a silent weekend of practice or just come for one full day/night.  Open practice weekends at Wonderwell are opportunities for beginning and experienced meditators to deepen their practice, participate in group meditation sessions, explore the natural beauty of the seasons of Wonderwell, and to connect with teachers-in-residence with opportunities for private practice interviews.  These weekends include participation in Dharma Sunday, if you so choose.

Noble Silence is observed from 8pm Friday through 8am Sunday

The rate per person per night is as low as possible on these weekends to allow everyone to come and practice. Natural Dharma Fellowship Members also receive a 50% rate reduction to the already discounted rate.  The weekend includes very simple vegetarian meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, including access to kitchen staples, teas, and snacks.

Anyone who wishes to commute, please use the NDF Member pricing options to register.  This will cover the cost of meals, offer a container in which to practice and an opportunity for a private practice interview.

Anyone wishing a 20 minute practice interview with the in-resident-teacher can sign up for one during check-in.   Interviews will not be scheduled before arrival on Open Practice Weekends.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To drop deep into the practices and connect with my true nature... Alison

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.
