Important Additional Information:
Pendle Hill will provide sheets and towels. They will provide chairs. They have some meditation cushions, but you might bring your own cushions if you wish to sit on the floor. You also might want to bring a shawl or light blanket to keep warm when sitting.
Bring slippers for indoor use, as the meeting room will be free of shoes. Bring appropriate clothes and footwear for doing walking meditation outside. You can check the weather forecast before you come. Plan on using unscented products for the time you are here.
Plan on dressing comfortably and informally if you like. You may want to bring special clothes for the Holidays and Shabbat according to your own custom. If you plan on using a tallis or tefillin for prayers, which is optional, please bring your own.
For the meditation retreat only:
The retreat will be conducted in social silence. That means, that once we explain the practice after dinner on Tuesday we will observe silence at all times, including during meals, walking, and the time spent in your room. There will be periods each day for asking questions in the large group. Each person will also have private time with the teacher, where you can describe your practice and discuss anything that is arising for you as a result of the retreat experience. The basic practice we teach is to pay attention to what is occurring in the present moment throughout the entire time of the retreat. Towards that end we invite you to leave reading materials, computers etc. at home.
