Friday 2.25-Sunday 2.27
In person at Roslyn Retreat Center

Take a break from endless to-do lists and constant connectivity to enter a place of both reflective solitude and supportive community. At this weekend-long meditation retreat at RVA’s beautiful Roslyn Retreat Center, you’ll receive gentle guidance from some of the city’s most respected mindfulness teachers: Philip Davidson, Amanda Lynch, John Taylor and Susan Wilkes. Enjoy dedicated time in silence through guided meditation practices, teacher talks, and techniques to take home with you. Emerge from the weekend refreshed, inspired, and with greater clarity about the essence of belonging and what it means to you. Each of us belongs to self, community and nature – let’s reconnect!

Due to the pandemic we will not offer double rooms except for upon request from participants that have a chosen room mate attending the retreat as well. Please contact us for pricing information on double rooms. We are limiting retreat capacity and will make adjustments to our protocols based on the current status of the pandemic. While The Innerwork Center and Roslyn Retreat Center do have COVID19 protocols in place, we strongly recommend that you complete the COVID19 vaccination protocol prior to attending. If you are unable to receive the vaccine, we will require that you present proof of a negative COVID test within the past 48 hours. We will watch developments in the pandemic closely and communicate updates in our planning to registration frequently. Should we cancel the retreat you will receive a full refund.

Expenses for retreats are increasing while personal incomes often are not. This means that some people who want to attend a retreat cannot afford the full cost. It is our intention, when possible, not to turn anyone away for financial reasons. Please email Executive Director Rachel Douglas with your request. If you would like to make a donation to The InnerworkCenter Scholarship Fund in order to assist those in need, please contact our office.

*Please note that our registration questions are all optional*

The Innerwork Center reserves the right to cancel a program at any time due to unforeseen circumstances (weather, instructor illness, etc). If we cancel the retreat, you will receive a full refund. A full refund is available to paid participants (minus a $10 processing fee) before 1.15.22. No refunds or credits are available for this retreat after 1.15.22 due to fees we must pay to the retreat center in advance. You are able to donate your registration or gift it to another participant at any time by emailing

Using our values of compassion and connection, we take COVID and your vulnerability seriously.

We strongly and lovingly request that you present your vaccine card OR a negative COVID test (taken within 48 hours) upon arrival. We require all participants to stay reasonably masked during the program.

It is the policy of the Innerwork Center to make our classes and retreats accessible to the extent that this is possible in the various locations and formats in which classes and retreats are held.
