Costs: Sliding Scale $535 – $1645, plus a donation to the teacher(s) and retreat staff. Scholarships are available. 

Insight Meditation is a simple and direct practice based on moment-to moment awareness, a technique that opens the heart and clears the mind. This course is an opportunity to practice continuous mindfulness in silence throughout the day, whether during meals and other daily activities. The context of silence frees us from much of the daily barrage of stimulus that draws our attention outward, and lets us deeply delve inward.

Designed for beginners and experienced practitioners alike, this course will include meditation instruction, talks on the teachings, and practice discussion with teachers.
