Leaving behind our homes, family and friends, and our duties and responsibilities can be a powerful support for deepening insight. In a quiet setting, with a simple schedule of sitting and walking meditation, practicing noble silence, the mind naturally begins to quiet down. A quiet, serene mind is capable of seeing clearly in a way that is often not available during our busy lives. Clear seeing or insight uproots the confusion behind the cycles of stress and suffering. Those who are new to meditation should attend the intro class or several weekly practice groups before their first retreat.
