The retreat, while primarily aimed at people teaching Mindfulness Based Applications or in training to do so, is also open to people with experience of previous silent meditation retreats who are interested in the dialogue between the early teachings of mindfulness and contemporary applications.

The Construction of Experience: This stand-alone retreat is the third in a series of four that examines Buddhist roots of contemporary mindfulness based applications; it focuses, from a Buddhist psychological perspective, on the frameworks known as the Aggregates (khandha) and Dependent Arising (paticca-samuppda). These teachings offer effective maps to navigate the complexity of what we call «experience». They also open up possibilities for insight into distress patterns running through our everyday lives and offer transformative tools dealing with the dynamics of «becoming» and «identification» as understood in Buddhist psychology.
Format: Mornings will be dedicated to silent, sustained practice. Afternoons and evenings will be opportunities for collective inquiry and personal practice.
