At Home Retreat

Filed under: Uncategorized — jonathanfoust @ 3:02 pm



We’re taking this weekend as a home retreat.   Why am I writing here then?

Well, that’s the cool part about a home retreat.  

You get to make up the rules.

Our rules are no internet, phone or distracting reading.  

Our practices include:


  1.  Silence.  Except when we need to do something mechanical  like make a meal.
  2. Time in nature, either walking, sitting.  (Kayaking is legal!)
  3. Time in meditation.
  4. Time in inter-personal meditation each day, naming what’s present and our relationship to it.
  5. As many naps as we can stand.
  6. A few hours each day for creativity.  Tara is working on her book.  I’m working with my own writing and playing with multi-media.



So far, so great.
