The core of insight meditation is the practice of mindfulness, that quality of awareness that sees without judgment. Silent sitting and walking meditation, the first steps in formal practice, become the foundation and continuous inspiration for meeting all aspects of life with a greater openness and willingness to learn. The ordinary activities of retreat life become a part of the practice because the challenges they offer help us develop the art of mindful living. The teachers will be assisted by Mary Gates.

Participants are required to have sat at least one meditation retreat lasting a week or longer in any Buddhist tradition. Please document this when registering.
