This retreat will encourage the cultivation of deep concentration and clear mindfulness as a support for liberating insight. Group instruction will emphasize mindfulness of the body and Four Elements meditations. Individual students may choose to emphasize concentration leading to jhana, or develop the four elements meditation as their primary focus. One-to-one guidance will tailor the practices to meet the needs of individual students.
This silent retreat is structured with alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation, dhamma teachings, and teacher consultations. Experience with previous silent insight meditation retreats and permission from the teacher is required.
