Mid America Dharma Retreats
Four Buddhas
 

Retreats are a major part of our practice of insight meditation. Doing many periods of sitting and walking meditation each day, concentration, energy and a continuity of mindfulness grow so that we may open our hearts and more clearly see the true nature of our experience.

Our retreats are silent and include periods of sitting and walking with occasional periods of instructions and guided meditation designed to deepen the practice. By sitting together we reinforce one another's efforts. Individual attention is available if a student needs clarification or assistance.

If you are interested in more information about a retreat, wish to obtain a registration form or would like to register, please click on the "Registration" link for the retreat listed below that you wish to attend.

A limited number of need-based scholarships are available on request. Financial Assistance Guidelines, the Scholarship Application and Deferred Payment Application forms are available on-line. Apply at least three weeks before the retreat and please register when applying, to assure we reserve a place for you. When possible, we invite scholarship recipients to assist with some of the tasks of the retreat, as part of receiving a scholarship. This is typically arranged between the recipient, the scholarship chair, and the retreat manager.
