Saturday Morning Retreats

The first Saturday of every month, 9 am - 1 pm. $20.

Take time from your daily life to deepen your spiritual practice in a monastic environment with Dharma friends. 'Through your own effort,' as the historical Buddha advised, awaken with mindfulness, attention and a renewed connection to joy.

Wear loose-fitting, modest clothes -- something comfortable and appropriate for the season. Note: please try to avoid avoid bright colors and shirts with logos and writing, as these can be distracting to other retreatants.

Formal sitting and walking meditation periods are punctuated with short breaks and followed by a formal lunch, all of it done silently.

Longer Retreats

A vital tradition of Zen Buddhism, longer retreats are a period of time set aside to deepen our spiritual practice in a monastic environment surrounded by Dharma friends.

Still Point encourages local Detroiters to attend the retreats, and accepts those outside Metro Detroit seeking to deepen their practice. Registration for the longer retreats begins roughly one month prior to the retreat.

Feel free to visit our Events Calendar for retreat dates.

For more information or to register please call Still Point Zen Buddhist Temple at 313-831-1005
