This retreat is an opportunity to practise for a sustained period over the New Year, dedicated to cultivating a heart rooted in calm receptive insight. The retreat follows a similar unfoldment to Insight Meditation retreats at Gaia House, with instructions in Insight and Loving-kindness meditation, daily talks and meetings with teachers. On New Year’s Eve we will offer an early evening period of reflection on the turning of the year.
This retreat is open to people who have attended a least one week’s previous residential Insight Meditation retreat.
