Mindfulness, Insight, Liberation: Insight Meditation Retreat

This insight meditation retreat, open to all, will explore the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, as taught in the Satipaṭṭhāna 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 with practice in both insight and metta (boundless friendliness), meetings with the teachers, talks and instructions, all within an environment of silence.
