Retreat: Autumn Mindfulness Experience

Escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and immerse yourself in silent serenity with our Autumn Mindfulness Retreat.  Our annual retreat will take place at the beautiful Mansfield Freeman Center for East Asian Studies in Middletown, CT and will offer a perfect opportunity to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit overlooking a harmoniously balanced Zen garden.

This retreat focuses solely on the practice of mindfulness, providing practical tools and a serene place to cultivate inner peace, reduce stress, and enhance overall well-being. By creating a neutral, inclusive environment, we offer a space where you can explore mindfulness practices without any religious, sectarian or doctrinal content. Our goal is to help you develop a deeper connection with yourself and the present moment, empowering you to navigate life’s challenges with greater clarity and calm. Join us and discover how mindfulness can transform your life, in an open and accepting community dedicated to personal growth and inner harmony.

The retreat theme is Silent Simplicity, which underscores non-judgmental awareness, mental relaxation, being in the present moment within the vast web of interconnectedness. 

First-timers to the most advanced are welcomed to our 2.5-hour morning retreat, which will include: basic sitting meditation instruction, conscious breathing, sitting, walking and voice meditation, and noble silence. This retreat is not religious or “buddhist” but focuses on the human practice of silent meditation. As already mentioned, it’s appropiate for anyone, over the age of 16, from any religious tradition, and for the non-religious too.  

Potential Outcomes:

1) Enhanced Mental Clarity and Focus

2) Reduced Stress and Anxiety

3) Emotional Healing and Well-being

4) Deeper Spiritual Connection

Whether you are seeking to deepen your mindfulness practice or simply crave a tranquil morning getaway, our retreat offers a transformative experience that will leave you feeling refreshed, recentered, and/or deeply reconnected to the present moment. Join us for a morning of relaxation, reflection, and renewal, and let the tranquility of autumn restore your inner harmony.
