Annual New Year’s Retreat in Texas with Shaila Catherine
An Insight Meditation Retreat
with Shaila Catherine
Sunday, December 27, 2020 to Saturday, January 2, 2021
This 6-night silent retreat offers practical instruction in mindfulness, concentration, and insight meditation practice (vipassana). Through developing mindfulness of breath, body, feelings, and mind, meditators will find that habitual judgments, fear, and craving will fall away, and the natural spaciousness of a mind imbued with wisdom and joy will be revealed. By cultivating calm, balanced awareness, we can dissolve any suffering that may entangle our hearts, and discover our freedom in the midst of things.
Instructions in sitting and walking meditation, consultations with the teacher, and daily dharma teachings make this retreat suitable for both new and experienced practitioners.
Location and Facility: This residential meditation retreat will be held at the Margaret Austin Center in Texas. It is mid-way between Austin and Houston. Accommodations are in rather rustic multi-person occupancy dormitories. Tenting is available but cold weather and rain is common at this time of year. If you opt for tenting, be sure that you have good camping gear.
Registration will open approximately 6 weeks prior to the start of the retreat.
