In a group of 15-25 people, you’ll take part in interactive workshops and exercises designed to help you practice what you learn.
There are two workshops – one for new passage meditators, and another for returnees. (All other activities are for the whole group.) There’s open time in the schedule, so you can rest or simply be on your own if you prefer.
New to Passage Meditation?
Your group will focus on how to meditate, and the benefits of passage meditation. There will be lots of time for getting your questions answered.
About our style: we’re enthusiastic about passage meditation because we’ve seen the tremendous benefits in our own lives. Our retreats are focused on passage meditation as an effective way to train your mind. Our retreats are practical and enjoyable.
By the end of the weekend you’ll have
- Tried out passage meditation five times (each session is 30 minutes and you can meditate on a chair or on the floor)
- Experienced the benefits of a quieter and calmer mind
- Developed a personal plan for maintaining a successful practice at home (if you choose)
- Experienced a balanced schedule of learning, rest, chats over home-cooked meals, and optional activities like “no-skills-required” informal volleyball games!
A Regular Passage Meditator?
Your group will focus on deepening your practice, discussing meditation mechanics, and answering questions such as: How can I keep my meditation consistent every day? When should I learn a new passage? How can I find spiritual fellowship when none of my friends meditate?
Your retreat will be facilitated by two BMCM presenters who are longtime passage meditators and have completed a five-year training program.
