Meditation Week

Saturday, July 11 to Saturday, July 18

Contact the Registrar

Come spend a week devoted to "practicing presence". Star Island is ideally conducive to experiencing a deeper awareness of life. The beauty of nature here awakens the senses and broadens the mind. And the camaraderie of kindred spirits here is inspiring and empowering. Our conference makes the most of this wonderful setting, balancing meditation practice, nature encounter and community building, for a week of insight, growth and renewal.

We will spend each morning together in silence, following a formal schedule of sitting and walking meditation sessions. Afternoon will be devoted to solitary nature-contemplation and free time. Evenings will center on various activities, such as candlelight chapel, small group discussion, and theme talks. Ending the day we will return to silent contemplation.

This retreat is suitable for beginning to experienced meditators, from a variety of traditions and faith backgrounds. Our silent time together will be compatible with many forms of meditation, such as Buddhist calm-abiding, Christian centering prayer, and many other simple "be-here-now" styles.
