Retreat: New Year’s in Texas
December 27, 2015 - January 2, 2016
A 6 night retreat with Shaila Catherine
Although meditation is renowned for promoting tranquility and mental calmness, meditation is not passive. Investigative methods play a vital role in the skillful development of liberating insight. Specific instructions for examining the mind feature prominently in the core teachings of Satipatthana, and many early Buddhist discourses. This insight meditation retreat will explore the fourth foundation of mindfulness with an emphasis on meditative investigation. We will examine the quality of our minds, and come to understand how we might meet life’s experiences free from suffering.
