Program Description

True spiritual practice is an engagement with life that goes against the stream of the confusion of this world—and is therefore an act of rebellion.

Join Noah Levine, renowned author of Dharma Punx and founder of Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society, for an insight meditation retreat that draws on the teachings and practices of early Buddhism.

Noah’s instructions will be based upon the four foundations of mindfulness in combination with exercises in loving-kindness and compassion.

You will focus attention on your breath, body, heart, and mind and learn:

  • A hybrid of mindfulness and loving-kindness practices
  • How to develop a greater sense of care for yourself and the world
  • To ease and alleviate your suffering
  • The path of awakening your deepest wisdom and compassion.

During this largely silent retreat, we will begin to see addictions and attachments as cravings in the mind and body. Each day will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, dharma talks, interviews, and some group process.

These practices will guide you to a path of meditative awareness and become tools to take home for experiencing more ease and freedom in your life.

Why Attend?

  • Learn powerful tools to break the habit of being attached to thoughts that lead to suffering, addiction, and cravings.

  • Strengthen your resilience during this silent meditation retreat, lead by Noah Levine—known across the country for his dedication to alleviating suffering through his books, meditation society, recovery program, and workshops.

  • Bring peacefulness into your heart and your relationships with ancient Buddhist practices for cultivating loving-kindness and compassion.
