Cultivation – Investigation – Contemplation: Insight Meditation Retreat for Experienced Students

This silent meditation course for experienced practitioners will focus on deepening mindfulness and insight into being with oneself and others. Our guiding map will be the teachings on the Four Applications of Mindfulness (Satipaṭṭhāna), which enable us to tap into the wealth of practical wisdom from early Buddhist contemplative traditions. The teachers will offer gentle and precise training in unifying the mind, guiding us in establishing different modes of awareness and in metta (friendliness). These practices allow for quieting and strengthening the heart, and foster transformative insights, growth and integration.
