For thousands of years, people have taken contemplative retreats, time spent away from one’s normal life, for the purpose of cultivating resilience and equanimity, while deepening meaning, compassion, and wisdom. This Saturday immersion retreat offers you the experience of listening deeply to your body, spirit, and mind while being guided by an experienced teacher in a beautiful setting. Within the nourishing atmosphere and beauty of Stanford’s campus, a combination of teaching, practice, and reflection provides a transformative learning experience.

Join us for contemplative practice and walks among Stanford’s natural beauty and art, supported by evidence-based contemplative teachings. Careful guidance and training is offered in several practices including ones that facilitate focused attention, embodiment, breath awareness, mindfulness, emotion regulation, values alignment, reflective insight, awe, selfcompassion and loving kindness. This retreat is suitable for both new and more experienced students of contemplative practices. You will receive information on contemplative practice opportunities on campus along with guidance on how to continue the “power of the pause” in your daily life.
