The Mahasi Sayadaw of Burma, one of the most influential Vipassana Insight Meditation teachers, developed a combination of techniques that help the meditator develop the concentration and insight into impermanence, unsatisfactoriness and not-self which lead to liberation, perfect contentment and joy. Two other contemplative practices are also developed - metta goodwill and bodycare. Time is also given to questions and daily life practice.
On the last Sunday morning of the nine day retreat, those who wish to make a commitment to Buddhadhamma, the Teaching of the Buddha, as the central guide for their lives for a short or long period, will be able to take Refuges and Precepts.
Please be aware that this retreat follows a tradition practised in Theravadan monastic traditions of not eating after lunch. Please do be in touch if you have any questions about this.
