Spirit Rock retreat with Buddhist nuns
Ayya Anandabodhi, Ayya Santacitta, Aloka Vihara; Spirit Rock (Code 366R12)
This retreat is an opportunity to deepen one's practice using the Four Foundations of Mindfulness as a basis for contemplation. Buddhist insight meditation is a direct tool: It is the moment to moment investigation of the mind-body process through calm and focused awareness. By seeing and letting go of our habitual attachments and reactions, we find a place of peace with life as it is. Joy, inner contentment, and confidence are the fruits of such release. Dana for teachers, retreat staff, and Spirit Rock can be offered at the end. An optional daily period of yoga will be offered by Cator Shachoy. Participants must attend entire retreat.
