An Insight Meditation Retreat
with Shaila Catherine and Philip Jones

August 7-14, 2020
A week-long retreat near Leavenworth, Kansas

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 teachers, and daily dharma teachings make this retreat suitable for both new and experienced practitioners.

Location: Marillac Retreat Center offers comfortable hotel-style accommodations with ensuite baths within an active contemplative community of Christian nuns.
