What makes our retreats unique
With small group work at the heart of our virtual retreat model, we always prioritize human contact & relationship–deep intimacy at a distance.
You’ll be supported, for a few hours each day, by a highly-experienced teaching team. Receive quality instructions, get your questions answered, we’ve got your back.
Help build the retreat by hosting & attending peer-led practice sessions, offered throughout the day. On retreat we practice alone, together.
Practice in a global community of adults, tuning in from across geographic time-zones & cultural backgrounds. ALL are welcome in a Mindfulness Retreat Online.
A Mindfulness Retreat Online may be for you if…
- You’re looking to deepen your meditation practice with dedicated peers and deeply experienced teachers.
- You’d like to connect with fellow meditation practitioners in a planetcentric learning community.
- You’re looking to meet the retreat prerequisite* for the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program (MMTCP)–offered by Jack Kornfield & Tara Brach, in collaboration with Sounds True and the Greater Good Institute.
* Our 6-day retreats can help you meet this pre-requisite.
Large Group Retreat Meeting
A daily meeting where everyone on the retreat will get together for a daily teaching plus practice and/or small group work. The large group community meeting marks the both the beginning of each new day of the retreat, so is an important common point of reference as we practice together across timezones.
Small Group Practice Meetings
At least once each day, you will be joining a group of dedicated peers, and a retreat teacher, to engage in group practice. These sessions will give you a chance to practice along with the retreat curriculum, and ask practice related questions. These sessions will be offered at a number of times throughout the day, and you’ll be able to see which teachers & times are available before registering for the retreat.
Peer-Led Practice Sessions
Throughout each day of the retreat there will be 30-minute silent peer-led practice sessions offered. These silent peer-led sessions give retreatants ample opportunity to engage in supportive group practice. You can even help host them, taking even deeper ownership for the continuity of practice on this retreat.
Private Teacher Meetings
During a Mindfulness Retreat Online you'll have the option to schedule a 20-minute private session with a retreat teacher. You can use this meeting to check-in about how the retreat is going, ask any questions that you have, and get general support from a skilled guide.
Mindfulness Retreat Network
Each retreat is offered through our Mindfulness Retreats Network. Here, you’ll be able to find a detailed schedule for your retreat, along with recorded talks and supplementary learning material from the retreat teachers. In addition, once the retreat is live, this network is where you’ll find the event information you’ll need to join the live peer-led practice sessions.
