A four-day Vipassana or Insight Meditation retreat gives us the opportunity to develop and deepen our practice. Within the framework of silence, 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. There will be evening discussions and time to walk and reflect in nature.
