Our five days together will be a time to dwell in profound awareness of what renews and rejuvenates our body, mind, and spirit. Supported by the conditions of spring beauty, essential Buddhist teachings, fellow practitioners, solitude, silence, and other inspiration, we reinvigorate ourselves and invite insights. The daily program will include sitting and walking meditation, mindful meals, Dharma discussion, mindful movement, outdoor walks, and personal interviews with the teacher. This retreat, held mostly in silence, is recommended for both beginning and experienced meditators who feel drawn to contemplation and mindful living. Mount Sequoyah offers 32 acres of serene beauty and nature, with its historic buildings enveloped by parklands and forests. A variety of trees and flowers explode with color and fragrance each spring.
Therese Fitzgerald trained for eight years at the San Francisco Zen Center and the Tassajara Mountain Monastery, and then with Thich Nhat Hanh for fifteen years. She was ordained as a Dharma teacher by Thich Nhat Hanh in 1994. Therese lives on the island of Maui, where she works as a Dharma teacher and as a hospice chaplain. Therese has made many visits to Arkansas to lead retreats since the mid-1990's.
