We’re settling in for seven days of silence and intensive practice here at Pearlstone Retreat Center. Over 100 participants giving it their all.

All the sessions begin and end with the ringing of bells so participants can relax and follow the flow of the day without watching the clock. A pause in the bell-ringer orientation.

When you’re on retreat you take part in two group meetings and have one 1:1 with a teacher. Other than this, you’re immersed in silence. Heaven for some, hell for others. My interview room.

The ‘campus’ here is on 160 acres and includes a farm with goats, sheep, chickens and gardens. A moment of zen on a hike.
