In this two-day retreat we will focus on the Absence (emptiness) qualities of the Absolute, the profound peace, the stunning stillness, and the non-conceptual contact with the Absolute on the path of Cessation.  Cessation is the temporary ceasing of all mental and physical activity completely absorbing into the source of all reality.

The format of the retreat includes:

  • talks, instruction, and guided meditation practices
  • group discussion on the practices and experiences
  • ample opportunity for questions or comments with Stephen
  • three-month access to the retreat recording
