About us

Our five days together will be a time to dwell in profound awareness of what renews and rejuvenates our body, mind, and spirit. Supported by the conditions of spring beauty, teachings on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness and renewing our innermost vows, fellow practitioners, solitude and silence, we invite insights and reinvigorate ourselves.

The daily program will include sitting and walking meditation, mindful meals, Dharma discussion, mindful movement, meditative work, and personal interviews with the teacher.

This retreat, held mostly in silence, is recommended for both beginning and experienced meditators who feel drawn to contemplation and mindful living.


Venue Highlights

Heartwood’s facilities include a historic thirty-room Victorian-era mansion, and additional thirty adjoining courtyard rooms. Three meditation halls and a commercial kitchen are designed to support short-term and long-term retreats, conferences, and workshops. Quiet spaces indoors and out invite contemplation and conversation. Our goal is to nurture all aspects of one’s being.
