Cell Phones and Internet Usage

We encourage all participants to minimize the usage of cellphones and conversing with others during the retreat.


Set up your meditation area before the retreat starts. For tips, please see the section on “Cushions” on our meditation guide: https://tallahasseechan.org/teachings/meditation/


Walk and move with gentleness and full awareness. Be light, unhurried, and at ease throughout the day.


Plan out your meals beforehand for the 1 hour lunch break, or even have them ready to pull out of the fridge.
