Insight Meditation as a Path to Freedom

In this silent mindfulness meditation retreat we will explore the innate quality of awareness as the foundation for cultivating clarity, understanding and insight into our human experience. We will investigate how through mindfulness practice we can develop insight into the causes of stress and the causes of genuine happiness. We will examine what it means to abide with kindness and awareness in the midst of life, so we can live with a genuine non-reactive freedom wherever we are.
