Several IMSB members joined Shaila for a ten-day experienced practitioner retreat at Spirit Rock. The retreat was led by Venerable Analayo, Phillip Moffitt, and Shaila Catherine and followed Venerable Analayo’s comparative studies of the Satipatthana sutta. The teachings presented a pragmatic approach to mindfulness that seamlessly integrates concentration, mindfulness, and insight. We were happy and proud to see our teacher, Shaila, serving on this illustrious teaching team. The retreat expanded on themes that we have been studying and practicing in IMSB’s day longs and walking the path program during the past last year. Look for an expansion of satipatthana practice as the theme of IMSB’s next Walking the Path Program (beginning September).
