About This Event

Exploring and practicing the foundational teachings of Mindfulness in a 5-night silent residential retreat. Led by certified MBSR and Mindfulness Teachers Beth Mulligan and Brandon Nappi.

Co-sponsored by the UMASS Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society and filling the retreat prerequisite for Oasis Trainings.

Silent retreat practice is a vital way to nourish our personal meditation practice, which is life-enhancing for everyone and particularly important for those who work with mindfulness-based interventions. This retreat is an opportunity to renew and deepen your practice of mindfulness meditation and living fully. The retreat will follow a rigorous traditional retreat schedule, held in silence, in a supportive and beautiful environment, enhanced by silence with experienced teachers. Join us for the beautiful fall colors on 50 wooded acres, an organic garden, trails, and a labyrinth.

Program Details

Much of our time will be spent engaged in sitting and walking meditation with periods of Mindful Movement. The teachers will offer daily talks, and interviews. Buddhist foundations of MBSR will be highlighted.

Who Should Attend?

This retreat fulfills the prerequisite for Oasis trainings and so is appropriate for anyone on the MBSR teacher training pathway, as well as active Mindfulness teachers and open to anyone interested in the practice of mindfulness in a traditional retreat format.
