"You can search the whole world over and not find anyone more deserving of your love than yourself." from the Buddha
Energize and deepen your practice with a small group of dedicated practitioners. Throughout the Intensive, we'll focus on both formal meditation and awareness in daily life - why we practice, what brings us back, how we practice and what we're learning - giving particular attention to practices that support our resilience as we navigate the complexities of our everyday lives.
This Insight Meditation intensive is designed for those with established meditation practices. Each two-hour session will include meditation, Dharma exploration and time to talk with each other. It’s a special opportunity for those wishing to deepen their connection to sangha, our spiritual community of friends, and to the teachings of awareness, compassion and wisdom.
