What to Expect at a Mini or Half-Day Retreat
Retreats at Kadampa Meditation Center provide us with teachings emphasizing particular meditation practices. We are also given an opportunity to immediately put the teachings into practice through guided meditations. Most retreats are suitable for everyone, regardless of experience level.
Mini retreats are broken into sessions with several breaks. A session typically consist of prayers in English to prepare our minds for meditation, a guided breathing meditation, a teaching on the retreat topic, and a meditation period to gain personal experience of the topic. See the webpage of the individual retreats for more details on the meditation topics and format.
