Retreat Dharma Talks at Spirit Rock Meditation Center

Insight Meditation Retreat

This is a silent retreat designed especially for those relatively new to the practices of Insight Meditation (vipassanā). The retreat includes systematic instructions on vipassanā meditation—both sitting and walking—as well as lovingkindness practices, meetings with teachers, and evening talks highlighting the central teachings of the Buddha and their practical application in our lives.

This retreat is silent except for teacher-led Q&A, small groups, or other practice meetings.

In this retreat, we will be looking at compassion through the lens of the 7 Factors of Awakening. We are calling it the 7 Factors of Compassion and we'll be exploring how a compassionate response to each of the factors supports awakening. Tonight I am exploring the intersection of compassion and mindfulness, investigation, and energy.
