Meeting our experiences with awareness – 10 Day Residential Insight Meditation Retreat with Metta (Irene Wulff) and Heike Griffin
September 15 @ 6:00 pm - September 24 @ 12:30 pm
During this retreat we want to look at ways of meeting experiences and to understand our patterns of relating to them. Often our first step is a reaction, rather than a response, we look for an answer, an explanation and by doing so we get lost in the thoughts that arise with them.
Can we see that experiences are ephemeral, like clouds in the sky, transient and fleeting? Accepting what is rather than what should be is a step into freeing our minds from reactivity and resistance.
This acceptance is a challenge for most of us; however, in it we can find peace and equanimity.
During the retreat we want to draw on the Buddhist teaching to reflect on, practise with and understand our experiences more deeply, from different perspectives.
Beginning on Friday evening at 6:00pm and ending on Sunday lunch time.
This retreat is offered on a Dana (donation) basis only.
To participate it is necessary to attend the entire retreat.
Please Note: If you intend booking for this 10 day retreat – please be absolutely sure at the time of booking you have made the necessary arrangements to attend the retreat and therefore avoid a late cancellation. It is very difficult to fill a place on a ten day retreat with short notice.
