5 Day Spring 2019 Meditation Retreat with Arinna Weisman Camp Burton ~ Vashon Island WA April 26 to May 1 In this 5 day residential retreat, we come together as a lesbian, bisexual, transgender, gender fluid/non conforming, and intersex community to explore our own minds and hearts through the practice of silent meditation. By cultivating moment to moment awareness, we deepen our connections to ourselves, each other and our lives, in an environment of love and compassion.
Vipassana meditation (also known as insight meditation) has been practiced in Asia for over 2,500 years. Retreatants are invited to spend the retreat in silent meditation practice with alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation. The retreat will also include guided movement, Dharma talks, group sharing and individual interviews. This retreat is open to beginners and experienced students. Orientation and instructions in meditation will be provided for beginners. Accommodations will be in comfortable single or double rooms. Meals will be vegetarian, with options for gluten and dairy free.
