When: 15-22 December 2017

Description: A one-week, (mostly) silent meditation retreat in the Insight Meditation tradition. Led by Zohar Lavie and Nathan Glyde of SanghaSeva.

Simple accommodation in tents and dormitories in a beautiful Himalayan setting.

Meditation is about calming the mind, understanding ourselves and freeing the heart. Insight Meditation (or Vipassana, literally translated as seeing deeply or clearly) is the practice of developing a calm and mindful investigation into the nature of experience, leading to wisdom, compassion and the end of suffering.

On this reteat, we emphasise exploring and developing greater mindfulness, compassion, and understanding. Silent retreats offer a precious opportunity to commit ourselves to a period of intensive practice in which we can nurture these qualities. They do not necessarily require any previous experience of meditation.

During the retreat there is a daily schedule of sitting and walking meditation. There are regular talks on a theme from the teachers, instructions and guidance about meditation and teacher-led interviews. Apart from the teaching (Dharma) sessions, the retreat is held in silence. This shared experience is often felt as profoundly peaceful and safe for participants.
