This three-month course, including its six-week partials, is a special time for practice. Because of its extended length and ongoing guidance, it is an opportunity for students to deepen the powers of concentration, wisdom and compassion. Based on the meditation instructions of Mahasi Sayadaw and supplemented by a range of skillful means, this retreat will encourage a balanced attitude of relaxation and alertness, and the continuity of practice based on the Buddha's Four Foundations of Mindfulness.
Every participant will be offered a private room.
Prerequisite is two retreats of a week or more with a recognized insight meditation teacher, or special permission. Please document this experience, including teachers' names, dates and length of courses when registering. You will also need to submit a questionnaire when signing up - your course participation cannot be confirmed until this is received and approved.
Special cancellation fees and deadlines apply: up to August 29, $100; afterwards, $250. Please note that these amounts will apply even if you wish to move from any part of the course to another.
