   ONLINE RETREAT –
Vipassana Meditation Retreat

 Meditation with calmness, mindfulness and insight

 Mervyn Croft

 

             Sliding scale: Sun 14 only: (R500 – R1000)
Sun +Tues (14+16): (R1000 – R2000)

This optional one- or two-day Online Vipassana or Insight Meditation retreat gives us the opportunity to develop and deepen our practice. We will be able to explore the three central practices of Buddhist meditation: calming the mind, training in mindfulness and developing insight through inquiry.  We will investigate the question “Who am I” and see how this inquiry provides the key to freeing ourselves from a narrow, self-centered way of living in the world.

There will be an emphasis on Practising within an atmosphere of friendliness, kindness and acceptance.  By bringing a quiet sense of humour and curiosity into all aspects of our meditation we can learn to practice in a relaxed and natural way. On the retreat we will take time to slow down, to breathe and to give ourselves some space to connect with our centre with periods of meditation practice and reflection. To see if we can extend these practice periods throughout the day to include how we move about our home in this time of lockdown. Preparing food, interacting with other members of our household (don’t forget the pets), taking a break from the news, limiting our phone calls. If we have a garden, we can do some weeding or simply practice some standing and walking meditation. In this way our whole day can be one of calming, breathing and listening to who we are…

The day will include four practice periods all done with Zoom

07.00 – 08.00    Chi Kung exercise and Meditation
09.30 – 11.00     Talk, Meditation and Reflection
15.30 – 17.00      Talk and Meditation
