Events and Retreats
Trained by Roshi Marsha Linehan and given permission to teach by Roshi Pat Hawk, Cedar has led silent meditation retreats for twenty years. Her teachings draw from the universal principles of many mystical traditions, including Zen, Christianity and the teachings of Prem Rawat, her teacher for fifty years. If you are interested in hosting a retreat with Cedar you can contact her to discuss your needs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In August, 2023, Cedar will lead a retreat for the Norway DBT team at a retreat center south of Oslo.
This retreat is full. May 6-10, 2024, Cedar will lead a retreat at the Redemptorist Renewal Center in Tucson, Arizona sponsored by New Roads Behavioral Health. Spaces are limited. To reserve yours, send an email to email@example.com. This retreat will fulfill the mindfulness requirements for DBT certification.
These retreats provide a supportive environment for silent meditation and reflection. The teachings and practice are nondenominational drawing from many spiritual traditions without endorsing any religion or belief system. Suitable for beginners and experienced meditators who seek structure, inspiration, individual attention, access to nature, comfortable rooms (single and double) and delicious healthy meals. They meet criteria for DBT certification and are affordable and accessible to working adults.
Retreats typically last about 3 days.
Cedar gives talks on the practice of meditation and how it is related to the work of therapists and other health care providers. She also offers individual meetings with participants and Q & A sessions.
Cedar has been leading retreats on her own for 13 years and has maintained her own meditations practice for fifty years.
"My recent retreat with Cedar was life changing. I was finally able to get in touch with the importance of having a regular practice and Cedar was instrumental in helping me establish what has become a daily meditation habit."
