Learn to Meditate

Curious about learning to meditate? Join us for this weekend meditation retreat and learn mindfulness meditation. This weekend is open to all. Beginners are welcomed! No previous experience necessary.

Learn basic mindfulness meditation techniques or brush up on your current practice. There will be new and experienced meditators alike at this meditation weekend retreat at Karmê Chöling.

Saturday morning there will be a thorough introduction to the practice of meditation. We will give detailed instructions on both basic sitting meditation and a "zen-style" walking meditation technique. We will talk a little about the view and understanding of meditation as well as go over some "best practices".

The weekend of instruction and practice will provide you a good foundation on which to base an ongoing, consistent meditation practice at home.

The weekend will include conversations and light talks.

Great for friends, couples, or individuals.

Attendance & Price

Joining All Sessions or Just a Few

You may join all of the sessions for the weekend or just a few. There is much benefit in being able to do the whole retreat, sinking deeply into meditation even for a couple of days. But the schedule (or your body) may prevent you from being able to do the whole weekend.

The Full weekend has three Main Sessions:

  • Saturday Morning Session (Introductory instructions)
  • Saturday Afternoon Session
  • Sunday Morning Session

Partial attendance is based on the number of Main Sessions you attend. There are two partial attendance options:

  • $110 - For two of the Main Sessions
  • $60 - For one of the Main Sessions

You'll need to contact our Front Desk in order to register and make arrangements for either of these partial attendance options at:
