Awakening with Insight

A week-long Insight Meditation retreat in Tampa, Florida

with Shaila Catherine

Saturday, December 5  to Saturday, December 12, 2020

The retreat begins with registration at 3:00 pm on Saturday, December 5, and ends with a noon lunch on Saturday, December 12.

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.

Location and Facility: This retreat will be held at the convenient and comfortable Franciscan Center of Tampa. It is a 15 minute drive from the airport, beautifully situated along the river in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood community. The accommodations are quite comfortable.

This retreat is suitable for both new and experienced practitioners. It will be held at the beautiful Franciscan retreat facility on the Hillsborough River in Tampa, Florida.
