Local weekend Retreats

Yoga + Mindfulness in Wisconsin

A retreat provides an opportunity and a caring container for undertaking intensive meditation practice. The central practice is mindfulness, which enables us to discover a freedom of heart in the midst of all things. Mindfulness practice is accompanied and complemented by embodied technologies of Yoga, somatic experiencing and more. 

With few diversions, the tendency toward distraction is reduced. In this space of intimacy with ourselves, there is a good possibility that we will know ourselves better after a retreat than we did before. Self-knowledge and understanding grow as we see that we can live each moment either with inattention, fear, and judgment or with clarity, kindness, and wakefulness. By cultivating the power of awareness, clarity, and kindness, we discover the path to liberation, inner freedom, and a peaceful heart.

Retreats are led by a team of experienced teachers from Heart Center and our broader spiritual community. The teachers offer practice instructions, Dharma talks, and scheduled 1x1 meetings to provide guidance throughout the retreat.
