Mindfulness, Insight, Liberation: The Foundations of Mindfulness-Based Modalities and Research

This retreat is specifically designed for professionals involved in mindfulness-based modalities. Educators, clinicians and researchers engaged in teaching or training in mindfulness-based approaches are welcome to attend.

The course is an invitation to extend and deepen personal experience of insight meditation, which is rooted in the cultivation of mindfulness. In the company of peers and colleagues, retreatants will explore the Four Foundations of Mindfulness as taught in the Satipaṭṭhâna discourse given by the Buddha, the foundational teaching of all contemporary mindfulness-based applications. This is a profound teaching that encourages us to place the path of freedom and compassion in the classroom of our lives, nurturing a liberated and compassionate heart.

All members of this retreat’s teaching team are involved in training mindfulness-based professionals.
