South Shore Insight's 24 hour residential retreat will include Buddhist mindfulness meditation as the grounding practice for this seaside retreat in Cohasset Massachusetts.
The four intertwined practices of LovingKindness, Compassion, Appreciative Joy, and Equanimity will be introduced and offered over the course of the retreat. Together with mindfulness these Divine Homes or dwelling places equipe the heart, body and mind with the tools, techniques — the practices — with a power deep enough to uproot and calm turbulences which obscure genuine seeing and insight.
This largely silent retreat will include guided meditation, instruction and walking meditation periods.
Each person will have their own room. Meals are included.
The non-residential day-time retreat option includes lunch.
Please note that the location of this residential retreat is at The St. Joseph's Retreat Center, an active Catholic retreat Center; though SSIMC's retreat will be the sole program occupying the facility during this time, the traditional iconography and decoration of the Center will be evident on the grounds of this extraordinary facility.
