An Insight Meditation Retreat
with Shaila Catherine

July 3-12, 2020
This is a 9-night retreat.

This 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.

The retreat is hosted by the Dhamma Vihara Monastery. To respect the Buddhist monastic lineage, and dwell in harmony together, we will have agreed to abide by some of the customs that are common to life in the culture of a Burmese monastery. Please read the information sheets carefully. The style and social conventions for this retreat will be different than other retreats that Shaila teaches.
