Seven days exploration of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness
SIM is happy to announce a special retreat which is run in collaboration with Bodhi College (United Kingdom). This Insight Meditation retreat will explore the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, as taught in the Satipatthana discourse given by the Buddha.
More information and registration
The Four Foundations of Mindfulness 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.
For further details and registration please visit the webpage on bodhi-college.org as mentioned above.
