The focus of the retreat is Dependent Origination, one of the most significant of the Buddha’s teachings in understanding both the cause of Dukkha (suffering) and its end. We will explore in depth the way that our psychological worlds are created moment to moment. Mornings are given to silent practice, afternoons to a sustained teaching session and evenings will include discussion and practice.
Priority in this retreat is given to those participating in the Committed Dharma Practitioners’ Programme (CDPP) programme, but there will be a limited number of spaces open to non participants. Prior experience of at least three, week long, silent insight meditation retreats is required.
