Theme:

This Insight Meditation retreat will explore the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, as taught in the Satipatthana discourse given by the Buddha.

It is a profound teaching that encourages us to place the path of freedom and compassion in the classroom of our lives, nurturing a heart that is receptive and unshakeable.

Each day will offer a sustained schedule of formal meditation practice (both Insight and Metta), meetings with the teachers, talks and instructions, all within an underlying environment of silence.

This event is run in collaboration with the SIM in The Netherlands.
