The November Insight Meditation retreat is a special opportunity to be in like-minded company surrounded by the peace of the surrounding landscape. Join us to reflect on the deeper truths, joys and sorrows we collectively share, in order to hone our spirit, nourish our lives, and strengthen our capacity to meet challenging times.
We will spend our days in noble silence with the sitting and walking practices of calming and insight meditation. Supported in this sacred container, we will explore Dharma teachings and practices that enable direct experience of our innate timeless freedom, while helping us open into deeper understanding, compassion and wisdom.
The retreat will draw from a synthesis of Theravada alongside Chinese Mahayana, which includes Kuan Yin practices, a focus on the Bodhisattva motivation, and the use of mantra and ceremony. Beside Dharma talks, meditation instructions, qigong, and a devotional chanting practice, there will be practice meetings with the teachers.
