June 7 - June 14, 2024 Friday - Friday | 7 nights

Insight, Awareness, and the Nine Bodies of Consciousness

This retreat offers a new style of Insight Meditation that employs the “Nine Bodies of Consciousness” map. The focus of this practice is on developing mindfulness of the felt sense of embodied experience, and directly experiencing the various capacities of consciousness, including intuitive awareness, which fosters the natural arising of insight. This distinct teaching style will be unfamiliar to first-time “Nine Bodies Insight” practitioners, and potential participants are strongly encouraged to listen to guided meditations beforehand.

How to Defeat Distraction

In this round of our sutta study series, “The Refuge of Dhamma: Exploring the Discourses of the Buddha,” we will explore discourses (suttas) that teach practical tools for working with distraction and the root causes of mental suffering. We will read suttas addressing distracting thought (MN 20), fear (MN 4), and mindfulness of the body (MN 119), and we will discuss how to bring the training of the mind more fully into our meditation and daily lives.

The Beauty of the Dhamma: Celebrating the Goodness of the Path

In the Buddha’s discourses, the Dhamma is often called kalyāṇa, or “beautiful.” During this daylong, we'll dive deep into the beautiful qualities of practice: how meditation brings us closer to truth, goodness, inspiration, and love. Our time will include guided meditation, walking and movement practice, reflections on the teachings, and group discussion. Join us for a celebration of the goodness of the path as we continue to walk each other home. Open for beginning and seasoned meditators alike.
