This five-day residential retreat will explore the practice of Insight Meditation and the liberating effect of moment-to-moment mindfulness. As a residential course, this retreat provides a valuable opportunity to deepen the skills of awareness and to cultivate a resilient heart. Together, we will seek balance and freedom within the flow of change. The teachers will offer guidance in developing attitudes of mind that support relaxation, courageous inquiry, and an authentic encounter with one’s own heart.
This silent retreat is open to all levels of experience and will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, Qi Gong, small group interviews, dharma talks and question/answer sessions.
