Attending one of our Vipassana Retreats is a great way to get away from your daily activities, free your mind, and concentrate on your meditation practice. The Retreats alternate between Weekend and Saturday (Day of Mindfulness). Even if you select the Weekend Retreat, but cannot attend the full retreat, you are welcome to attend “Saturday only”. Please read the ‘ABM Retreat Guide’ for more information on retreat protocol.
What you could expect during the practice?
These Vipassana Retreats are conducted in silence, provide an excellent opportunity to deepen your meditation practice, and your understanding of the Dhamma. We offer a balanced schedule of sitting and walking meditation, meditation instruction, and Dhamma talks.
Wat Atamma is nestled in a lovely park-like setting on five acres where you are encouraged to camp out when the weather permits, usually during the months of June to September. Otherwise, you would stay in our building.
For the Weekend Retreat please arrive Friday evening at 6.30pm to set up and get oriented. The first session begins at 7pm. The retreat will end Sunday morning at 9am after which you are welcome to join our regular Sunday service. The Retreat Schedule is:
Breakfast and a Thai vegetarian lunch will be provided.
