The commencement of Personal Retreat at SCOL — delayed due to heavy snow — will begin on March 18th!
The Ser Chö Ösel Ling Winter Retreat provides an opportunity for individual with prior retreat experience, who can practice independently, to do extended personal retreat in a supportive group environment. Individuals who wish to take part will need to have approval from their primary mentor and have a specific plan for retreat worked out in conjunction with their mentor. Both the length of retreat, and the specific program of practice should be agreed to in advance. As a rule of thumb we recommend that people who have not done individual retreat before limit their first personal retreat to a few days. Individuals who have done personal retreat before should consider a gradual increase to the length of retreats if they are inclined to do longer retreat.
