Serenity and Insight -Day Retreat with Vince Cullen
January 12, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
‘Serenity and Insight – a Journey without Destination” is a day-long retreat exploring some Buddhist principles and practices for being present in everyday life.
This retreat will be a day of talks, sitting practice and (weather permitting) walking practice devoted to cultivating ‘serenity and insight’ even in the midst of the difficult. We will practice some silent meditation; and some ‘Heart’ practices.
Information about coming on retreat at Sunyata can be found here.
Further details about the day can be seen here.

Cost of Retreat:
Like all events at Sunyata, this retreat is offered on a donation (dana) basis. We are asked sometimes for guidance regarding donations towards the centre and we calculate that €45 per person per day meets the ‘break even’ cost for running all of our retreats throughout the year. If one wishes to give more than the guided amount, then that would be very welcome. All donations are anonymous.
