Christina Feldman: Cultivation – Investigation – Contemplation: Insight Meditation Retreat for Experienced Students (7 days)June 30 - July 7, 2017 | Insight Meditation Society, Barre, MA
This silent meditation course for experienced practitioners will focus on deepening mindfulness and insight into being with oneself and others. Our guiding map will be the teachings on the Four Applications of Mindfulness (Satipaṭṭhāna), which enable us to tap into the wealth of practical wisdom from early Buddhist contemplative traditions. The teachers will offer gentle and precise training in unifying the mind, guiding us in establishing different modes of awareness and in metta (friendliness). These practices allow for quieting and strengthening the heart, and foster transformative insights, growth and integration.
An optional daily period of mindful movement will be offered by Yuka Nakamura.
Participants are required to have sat at least one silent meditation retreat of a week or more with a recognized insight meditation teacher. Please document this when registering.
