Mindfulness, Insight, Liberation: Insight Meditation Retreat

This insight meditation retreat will explore the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, as taught in the Satipatthāna discourse given by the Buddha. It is a profound teaching that encourages us to place the path of freedom and compassion into the classroom of our lives, nurturing a heart that is receptive and unshakeable. Each day will offer a sustained schedule of formal meditation practice (both insight and lovingkindness), meetings with the teachers, talks and instructions, all within an environment of silence.
