This potent 7-day Silent Residential Retreat will be held at the Crestone Mountain Zen center in Colorado. The Zen Center is located at 8400 feet in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, surrounded by pinon pine and juniper forest and spiritual centers. This lovely combination offers the perfect setting for silent retreats. For more info about Crestone and to see accommodation options for early arrival please click here.
“ This Silent Retreat offers a profound opportunity to delve deeply into our truest nature. We rest as stillness and fullness through silent sitting, guided meditations and a safe and intimate forum of questions and response. This deep immersion in Silence comes to the foreground and lives our life consciously.” Sharon Landrith.
Total cost of the retreat is $1050.00, $550.00 to be paid when you register.
The remaining $500.00 will be paid when you arrive. This includes teaching, accommodations and food. The cost is the same for accommodation in rooms or camping.
Accommodation is dormitory-style with 3 people sharing a room - see photo. In addition, there’s one studio, which can accommodate 6 people - see photo.
Camping is also available.
Each day includes 6 periods of meditation in the Silence of the Zendo.
We gather in the dome for Guided Meditation and Satsang, as well as an opportunity for questions in an intimate and safe environment.
The days begin at 7:00am and end at 9:30pm. One day will be a self-retreat day.
Those attending Sharon's retreat for the first time will receive a 30-minute private interview (dokusan).
You’ll be served three delicious vegetarian meals daily.
Gluten free, lactose free and soy free options are available. A cost of $10/per day is added for these diets. See info about cuisine here.
Dana (donations) to Sharon are accepted with much gratitude. Dana, in the Buddhist tradition, is the practice of generosity. It is the movement to give without anticipation of anything in return and as such, is given from the heart. Your generosity is a gift that supports not only the teacher, but the Sangha and your own practice as well. You might say that it is the ultimate gift.
Registration will be at 4pm on the 2ndof September.
The retreat ends with lunch at 1pm on the 9th of September.
