"I was fortunate to attend a weekend retreat to Joshua Tree. Heather's experience and knowledge and the way she conveys information led everyone who attended to get very quiet and feel incredibly safe. I didn't want it to end."

Savoring Silence: A Mindfulness Retreat

February 8th, 2018 – February 13th, 2018

True silence is not oppressive, it is not lonely, it is not disconnected from our world. True silence is internal, it is rich, and it clears the path to insight and the qualities of joy, compassion, and equanimity that are available to us all.

Learn the value of a silent retreat with Senior Mindfulness and Compassion teacher Heather Prete as she guides us to experience our inner and outer world with bare awareness, the mind of true knowing and loving kindness.

“True silence is not a contraction, like the tightening and holding we associate with being told to behave in school. It is a process of gently unfolding into non-doing, of letting go of the habits that rob us of being truly here for ourselves and our lives. It is coming home…” – Heather Prete

 

We will be:

-Finding a place of peace and resiliency within ourselves, not dependent on outside conditions
-Learning to find the beauty inherent in each moment
-Cultivating equanimity and joy so we may be the love we wish for the world
-Savoring our inner goodness and the goodness of others
-Savoring our connection with the planet
