Join us for our annual October Retreat at Mt. Baldy Zen Center.
Saturday, Oct. 14th — Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017
This years retreat will be practiced in silence, at the request of community members who attended our silent retreat in 2016. We had such wonderful feedback on our last silent retreat, so we are excited to offer this years retreat in silence as well.

«Silence allows for a heightened sense of intimacy with the world. In sustained silence our senses become more acute, and both the inner and outer world can appear to us with greater clarity. For most people, the silence of a retreat creates a space in which they can see themselves more clearly. Rather than being actively distracted by work, relationships, the internet, music, or various external events, they have an opportunity to notice overlooked feelings and concerns. The sustained periods of silence give people a chance to observe the subtle, important motivations and values behind how they live.»
