A Residential Insight Meditation Retreat
RIMC's 25th Anniversary Insight Meditation Retreatwith
Sharda Rogell and Howie CohnFriday June 21 (evening) to Friday June 28 (noon), 2019
Shekinah Retreat Centre, Waldheim, SK
In this retreat, we will explore the Buddha's pathway to inner peace and freedom. Through mindful attention to our moment-to-moment experience, whether painful or pleasurable, we see with increasing clarity the way things truly are. Within the silence and the support of sangha, we deeply connect with the flow of life and come to understand how to free ourselves from deeply held patterns and awaken to our essential goodness as well as other beautiful qualities of our heart and mind.
Held in noble silence, we will enter into a traditional retreat form with alternate periods of sitting and walking, daily instructions, dharma talks and discussions in both large and small groups.
This retreat is suitable for new and experienced students alike. All are welcome.
