Deepening Awareness

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

This non-residential retreat will deepen your experience of mindfulness meditation (satipatthana). Mindfulness leads to insight (vipassana), deep seeing into the nature of experience. We will cultivate mindfulness through stillness, movement and the ordinary activities of daily life.

The days will consist of meditation instruction, meditation periods, a dharma talk and an opportunity for questions and group discussion. ‘Noble silence’ will be observed, apart from periods of instruction or discussion and any other necessary communications. 

Suitable for beginners and those familiar with mindfulness meditation.
