The Twelve Insights of the Four Noble Truths

In the Samyutta Nikaya, the Buddha describes Twelve Insights that progressively lead us to a full understanding and integration of the Four Noble Truths. This retreat will offer an in-depth exploration of these insights, through silent meditation, talks about the teachings, interviews and optional periods of mindful movement. This time of practice allows us to meet life’s challenges with greater ease of heart and balance of mind.
