Mindfulness, Insight, Liberation: Insight Meditation Retreat (8 days)

July 11 – 19, 2015 (Saturday to Sunday)

There may be rides available for this retreat. You can also offer a ride. Click here to view the listings.

This insight meditation retreat, open to all, will explore the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, as taught in the Satipaṭṭhâna discourse given by the Buddha. It is a profound teaching that encourages us to place the path of freedom and compassion into the classroom of our lives, nurturing a heart that is receptive and unshakeable.

Each day will offer a sustained schedule of formal meditation practice (both insight and lovingkindness), meetings with the teachers, talks and instructions, all within an environment of silence.

An optional daily period of yoga will be offered by Luis F. Sierra.
