Eight-Day Vipassana Retreat with Joy

Saturday, June 2nd, 2 p.m. – Saturday, June 9th, 2 p.m.

Are you ready for a deeper immersion into the glories of blissful concentrated presence … AND, perhaps, the swampy cesspools ensconced within our conditioned minds? You can take a guided tour, amidst the sanctuary of a loving sangha and the richness of Wattle Hollow’s own healing energies.

Our tools of discovery will be : Vipassana meditation, yoga, qi gong, pranayama, group naps, writing and artwork and cooking lunch together. We will follow the Buddhist precept of fasting from lunch until breakfast and observing noble silence (except for group discussions and private interviews with me/Joy.) It will be hot (no a.c.) and you will have the opportunity to interact with 🕷 bugs 👹 (hey, dears, it’s the Ozark woodlands in June). So, if you’re still reading this….then consider whether it’s indeed time for you to join me.

Cost: by donation
