About the event
Vipassanā (Pāli) or vipaśyanā (Sanskrit) is commonly translated as 'clear seeing' or 'insight'. This meditation methodology was the principle meditation practise taught by the historical buddha in India around 500 B.C, and remains at the heart of buddhist practise. Insight Meditation is uniquely placed to cultivate within us wisdom; insights into our behaviours and patterns, and the opportunity to develop both our hearts and minds in wholesome, beneficial ways.
This retreat will be held in 'noble silence'. We will offer an introduction to the practise & some guidance in the morning, then there will be alternative periods of silent sitting and walking meditation. There will be opportunity for Q&A regarding your practise. Reading and writing during the retreat are discouraged.
Spaces are limited so that particpants can go deeper into their practise; booking is essential. Note - this retreat is offered to those motivated to develop & practise Insight Meditation. If you are drawn to other meditation practises, please consider joining an alternative retreat to allow opportunity for others to attend on this date.
Cost: $85 inclusive of a shared plant-based lunch and refreshments
