I’ve been meditating regularly for just over two years. During that time I’ve been to a few day-long retreats, but nothing longer than that. I’ve wanted to sit a longer retreat, but I’ve never had the time and the money to do so.
It turns out that I may be able to attend a week long retreat during the time between Christmas and New Years.
I’m excited about this opportunity, but also a bit nervous. Do I have the stamina to sit a full week? What will I do without coffee? Those are among the hundreds of little questions that I have bouncing around in my head.
Assuming that the stars align and I am able to attend this retreat, I feel that I will be able to deepen my practice in a way that daily sitting just doesn’t allow for.
As the retreat approaches, I will make sure to post more info here.
