Participation in a retreat is an extremely valuable way to deepen one’s insight meditation practice. A retreat offers the opportunity to experience an extended period of uninterrupted practice under the guidance of an experienced teacher. Our retreats are primarily conducted in silence, though there are Dhamma talks and short discussion periods built into the schedule.
We offer retreats at both of our centers
We offer nonresidential one-day and weekend retreats in Wenham, MA, and Redding, CT. In Redding, there are also a few beds that can be reserved on a first-come basis. We also periodically offer five-day residential retreats at an offsite retreat center.
Please see below for the schedule of upcoming Mahasati retreats. Questions about retreats in Redding should be directed to Negin at ReddingMeditation.org, and questions about retreats in Wenham, or about any offsite residential retreats, should be directed to Michael at CFMIM.org.
Retreats at Massachusetts and Connecticut Centers
This silent session is more intensive than in our weekly classes. It allows the mind more time to drop daily thoughts and develop deeper levels of awareness of our body, mind, thoughts, and feelings.
