Retreat Schedule

Insight Retreats are opportunities to engage in full-time mindfulness training. The daily schedule involves periods of sitting and walking meditation, instructions, dharma talks, work meditation, and practice discussion with teachers. Silence is maintained throughout most of the retreat.

Cost: Our retreats are offered freely at no cost to anyone who participates. Most of the financial support for IRC comes from donations participants offer at the end of retreats. Their generosity is what allows others to participate in future retreats. A refundable deposit is required to apply for a retreat.  The deposit is refunded when one arrives at the retreat or if one cancels three weeks before the start of the retreat.

Lottery: All applications that come in during the first 3 weeks of registration are entered into a lottery. Those not selected can be placed on the Waiting List. If an applicant is not selected in the lottery after applying for a retreat, the probability of getting accepted increases with each subsequent retreat they apply for. More Info.

Location: Insight Retreat Center, 1906 Glen Canyon Rd, Santa Cruz, CA  95060
