We will once again be running a week-long silent insight meditation retreat early in the year of 2017. This is a wonderful way to being the year and is suitable for beginners or experienced practitioners.
Insight meditation allows us to examine and transform the habitual limited patterns of mind that create confusion, anxiety, reactivity and suffering. The Dharma teachings, practices of mindfulness and the spirit of inquiry cultivate insight into the true nature of the open heart-mind, which is essentially free, intrinsically empty, naturally radiant and ceaselessly responsive.
An open heart and open mind cultivates and awareness and clarity that is available in each precious moment and a profound ease and connection with all of life.
The retreat offers an ideal opportunity for established meditators to deepen their practice. Those new to meditation can experience a valuable and gentle introduction to silent meditation and the dharma teachings in a welcoming supportive environment. There will be opportunities for creative expression to enhance and bring new dimensions to practice.
