Life presents us with the challenge of living from a place of wisdom and its resulting true happiness, rather than from delusion and its corresponding suffering. Insight meditation leads us towards that wisdom. As understanding deepens, we can live life with a wiser and more loving heart.

This silent retreat, open to all, aims to strengthen our understanding, enabling us to use everything in life as food for freedom.
