The schedule offered at Adyashanti’s retreats
uniquely reflects his sense and experience of
what best supports awakening. The deep silence
of meditation coupled with the focused inquiry of
sessions with Adyashanti are the ground and seed
from which awakening flowers.
Because the schedule is a vital part of the retreat
container, if you cannot arrive on time and
plan to stay through the end, Adyashanti requests
that you not attend the retreat. This shared commitment
supports the group as a whole to experience
the depth of retreat.
Day 1: After late afternoon check-in, there is a
dinner break followed by a retreat orientation and
a talk by Adyashanti.
Daily Activities: Each full day of retreat begins
at 7:30 am and ends by 10:00 pm. Most days include
several periods of silent sitting, a guided meditation,
two sessions with Adyashanti (talks and/or dialogues), and three meal breaks.
Last Day: The retreat officially ends just before lunch. (Lunch is provided but is optional.)
Adyashanti requires that all attendees arrive on time for retreat (by check-in on the first day) and plan to stay at the retreat site through the end of the retreat (just before lunch on the last day). There is no “commuter option.” All participants are required to secure housing at the retreat site using the group housing form provided. Further guidelines regarding how to support the silence and retreat environment will be provided upon arrival.
