This four-day silent retreat will introduce newer meditators to a meditation practice that is gentle and open from the outset, as well as support experienced meditators in developing more compassion and empathy for their inner world and experience.

Where most forms of mindfulness focus on the breath and other bodily sensations, emotion-focused mindfulness (EFM) emphasizes mindfulness of emotions and embodied mental states. Rather than feeling better, the emphasis is on getting better at feeling, so that our feelings help us better navigate our lives.

Meditation sittings will range from 20 to 40 minutes long, with time for journaling after each meditation. Two daily talks and two discussion periods. There will be daily small group interviews led by teachers, as well as opportunities for retreatants to speak individually with a teacher about their meditation practice.
