This will be a silent retreat other than designated question and answer times. In order to
gain the most of a non-residential retreat, it is recommended that you continue your
silence at non-meditation times throughout the entire weekend. This includes times
when you are at your home or hotel as well as during meals. To ease the logistics of the
retreat, we ask that you eat your meals prior to or after the retreat times with the
exception of Saturday’s lunch. Please bring a sack lunch for this meal. The Sangha will
have tea and water but you may wish to bring your own drink as well. At the conclusion
of the retreat, we will join together for a potluck meal. We ask that you bring a
vegetarian dish to share.
