Developing  Concentration, Insight, and Reflections on Impermanence.

A retreat with Shaila Catherine.

This silent insight meditation retreat will emphasize the cultivation of both concentration and mindfulness to enhance the potential for liberating insight. Mindfulness of body and breath will be the primary focus of this retreat.

In honor of the Halloween holiday optional instructions and guidance will be offered in the classic practices of skeleton, corpse, and death contemplations, as a powerful means of exploring impermanence and nonattachment. Meditation instructions, consultations with the teacher, and daily dharma teachings make this retreat suitable for both new and experienced practitioners.

The peaceful retreat setting under great pines offers a unique opportunity for silent meditation in a setting of stunning natural beauty—an insight holiday. Set at an exquisitely beautiful retreat center right on the shore of Lake Tahoe, participants may enjoy walking meditation on the beach, and if weather permits, mindful kayaking on the lake.
