The Buddha’s teachings and meditation practices remind us of the ever-present possibility of waking up to a sense of well-being, presence, and true nature that does not depend on circumstances. This silent insight meditation (vipassanā) retreat is designed for both new and experienced meditators. The retreat includes systematic instructions in vipassanā meditation, following the four foundations of mindfulness. The retreat will also include lovingkindness meditation, meetings with teachers, and evening talks highlighting the central teachings of the Buddha and their practical application to our lives.
This retreat is silent except for teacher-led Q&A, small groups, or other practice meetings.
