Natural Wisdom and Compassion: Insight Meditation Retreat

During this weeklong retreat, we will explore and cultivate the practice of awareness that leads to well-being and liberation. When the mind is supported by skillful qualities and is unclouded by confusion, greed, and negativity, reality can be accurately recognized. We are able to see that everything that appears is the natural display of impersonal conditions giving rise to their lawful effect. With the ease of simply knowing our own experience moment by moment, deeply conditioned habits of mind that lead to suffering for ourselves and others are weakened. Natural wisdom and compassion can arise and grow. This retreat will be held in Noble Silence and is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced meditators. People from all walks of life are warmly welcome. Each day, the format will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, with self-scheduled sessions also encouraged if appropriate for your practice. During these, participants can establish their own rhythm of sitting, walking and other forms of meditation. Meals, resting and daily work times will also be used as opportunities to cultivate and maintain awareness.
