Spring Weekend Retreat

Spring Weekend Retreat

Online with Adyashanti

May 5–7, 2023

Cost: $240

Registration Closed


On retreat, I encourage all participants to fearlessly inquire down to the very root of self and the illusion of separation so that the light of awakening can penetrate throughout the whole of one’s being. I encourage you to enter into the spirit of retreat, into a wholehearted commitment to eternal truth here and now.
~ Adyashanti

This Weekend Online Retreat is designed to mirror the experience of our in-person residential silent retreats. The full three-day program includes daily talks and Q&A sessions with Adyashanti, along with periods of guided and silent (independent) meditation, and qi gong sessions.

  • Dive into fresh post-sabbatical teachings from Adyashanti.
  • Spend three full days wholly devoted to spiritual practice.
  • Reflect upon and ask your innermost spiritual questions.
  • Deepen your meditation practice with multiple daily silent sittings.
  • Participate with fellow retreatants from around the world.

The structure and schedule for silent retreat has been developed by Adyashanti over many years of teaching to create an environment which allows everyone to experience the depth of silence. By participating in this atmosphere, cultivated by a shared intention with others, retreat helps promote awareness, reflection, and embodiment of the truth of who we are and all that is. Retreat is a time of one-pointed inquiry, a commitment to questioning our most cherished ideas and beliefs.

Apart from Adya’s live talks, participants will sit with themselves in quietude, feeling the support of the larger group of retreatants, who share a like-minded intention.



    Registration open through May 3.

The program schedule was developed by Adyashanti and reflects his experience of what best supports awakening. The deep silence of meditation, coupled with the focused inquiry of the talks and dialogues, are the ground and seed from which awakening flowers. By setting aside several days outside of your usual schedule and routine, you stop working, tending to family, or taking on other responsibilities and find yourself in a place where all that’s needed is to listen deeply.


About Silence

While this program was designed to support those wishing to participate in full silence, we understand this may not always be possible. Complete silence is neither required, or necessary, to obtain the benefits inherent in immersing yourself in introspection and inquiry for a dedicated period of time. Also, the proposed program schedule can be adapted to fit your availability.

Alternative Time Zone Considerations

This retreat will be held in the Pacific time zone (PT) but is accessible to everyone. Video replays will be available for 30 days after the retreat.

For those in later U.S. time zones, we recommend you adapt the program schedule by shifting the late-night meditations to the mornings.

For those in more distant time zones, you may Contact Us for an additional option which includes faster replays.
