Where Awareness meets Wisdom
This is an intensive meditation retreat with the emphasis on the natural awareness that we can learn to sustain in each moment, from waking to sleeping, and through the different activities of the day. We will be drawing on the Satipatthana Sutta, the Buddha's primary teaching on Mindfulness.. We are learning to watch our minds, and to learn what will support continuity of awareness. An experimental and playful attitude is encouraged to explore - among other things - the relationship between mindfulness and wisdom, how to cultivate a mind that can distinguish between concepts and 'reality' and recognise the quality of mindfulness whether it is cultivated or uncontrived. There will be regular input, some led meditations and the opportunity to talk about your meditation practice with the team. During the evening sessions there will be some simple Buddhist ritual.
The retreat is suitable for people with at least 1 year of regular meditation practice and who have attended at least one full weeks retreat before.
