Having recently restarted my meditation practice, I decided to use the opportunity of an empty apartment for a short solo meditation retreat. One evening, one day, and one morning. The plan is to do much the same as one would do on a more formal group retreat - lots of seated meditation, some walking and chanting, eating/cooking/work and a dharma talk in the evening.
Seems to me that group retreats are more powerful - more support and enthusiasm - but the solo variant is OK too if one is a bit of a nazi regarding the schedule. 'Cause Once You Pop (with distractions), You Can't Stop!
Do you do solo retreats? How do you spend the time? Thoughts concerning the difference between solo and group retreats?
