Our Half-Day Meditation Retreats are designed for new meditators, people who want to sit for a longer period of time without attending a full retreat, and an opportunity for experienced students to cultivate their practice. We'll have periods of sitting and walking meditation, and time for discussion and Q&A.
Scientific research indicates that practicing meditation regularly has many benefits, including a stress relief, anxiety management, and better concentration and focus. You can read more about this here and here.
Beginners are welcome. Chairs and cushions will be provided.

Caitlin Bailey studied sound recording, Italian, and cello for her bachelor and master degrees, but her life took a different turn when she moved to New York and fell in love with yoga and cycling. She has raced for Team Vulpes and Team Dedicated Endurance Training. Caitlin has been a student at The Interdependence Project since 2011 and is a graduate of their 2014 Yearlong Meditation Teacher Training Program. She is a student of Ethan Nichtern and enjoys exploring how meditation and yoga practice can help us uncover our kindest and most authentic selves.
