Solo retreat advice

4 posts in this topic

Hey all, 

I have finally booked a place for a 7 day solo retreat. I am seeking some advice here. 

I have never been on a retreat before but have been meditating for a year. 

Now my question is: Should I go balls to the wall and try to meditate 10 hours for 7 days or would it be better to take a book and/or a journal to do some reading and contemplation as well? 

Any other suggestions which you consider helpful will be much appreciated.

How much do to meditate regularly? If you have a 1hour a day practice and try to do 8 hours of meditation a day, there's a big change you will burned out by the second day.


A thought can´t ever tell you how you feel.

I'd go all out on meditation. At least on your first retreat.

I recommend that first day your first session is 45m long, second 1h and then 1.5h and then 1.5h sessions.

It will permanently supercharge your meditation.

Then you can experiment with different stuff.
