This meditation retreat in a beautiful mountain setting offers a unique opportunity to reconnect with ourselves, and the natural world. The mountains, forests and rivers naturally work to quiet the mind, while living and practicing together develops a strong relationship with nature and with each other.
The unique retreat format encourages exploration of the ways that spiritual practice in wilderness can nourish an ecological and social consciousness that is based on caring, wisdom and compassion rather than anxiety and anger. The schedule includes daily mindfulness meditation (with instruction), Dharma talks, and experiential exercises. There will also be one on one and small group meetings with teachers, as well as ample time for discussion and sharing one’s experiences. The focus will be on cultivating a direct experience of being/nature, and culminates in an optional two-night wilderness solo.
Rocky Mountain Ecodharma Retreat Center and the nearby Indian Peaks Wilderness are an ideal place for this type of retreat. The area is extraordinarily beautiful, peaceful and pristine, with a wide variety of trails, wildflower-covered meadows, creeks, and peaks.
As RMERC is just opening this summer we have been able to reduce the cost for this retreat to just $600 with early registration.
