Insight Meditation Retreat in Israel with Shaila Catherine – May 16-22
May 16, 2018
Shaila Catherine will lead an Insight Meditation retreat in Israel May 16-22, 2018.
Theme: Strategies for Overcoming Distracting Thoughts
Mental restlessness is an insidious and pervasive hindrance that all practitioners struggle to overcome. We can refine our skills for working with the modes of thinking that distract us from being mindful: critical thoughts, planning, worrying, lustful thoughts, judging, memories, internal commentaries, to name a few. The teachings on this retreat will present a sequence of strategies for dealing with obstructive mental patterns; these progressive instructions are found in two discourses in the Middle Length Discourses, (suttas 19 and 20). Practitioners will be encouraged to develop a mindfulness-based meditation practice, while exploring these strategies for overcoming distractions. This retreat is suitable for both new and experienced practitioners.
