This is a silent retreat designed especially for the practice of Insight Meditation (vipassanā). Insight Meditation involves learning to be with experience as it is. It is the embodiment of the present moment that allows us to have the direct experience of freedom. Embodiment itself is natural. The gradual unfolding of Insight meditative instructions is designed to provide a direct path to this realization.
The retreat includes systematic instructions on vipassanā meditation—both sitting and walking—as well as lovingkindness practices, meetings with teachers, and evening talks highlighting the central teachings of the Buddha and their practical application to our lives.
The retreat will be supportive to both new and long-time practitioners.
