Mindfulness and Liberation – Foundations of Mindfulness-Based Approaches

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 Applications of Mindfulness as taught in the early Buddhist Satipaṭṭhāna Teachings, the foundational teachings of all contemporary mindfulness-based applications. These teachings offer a path to well-being, freedom and compassion, and encourage the integration of contemplative wisdom into the fabric of our daily lives.
