Summer ten-day Meditation Retreat

with Maria Bots & Anne Emmanuelle Roche-Bret
August 1 / 4:00 PM - August 12 / 10:00 AM

In this ten-day retreat we will practice the basic meditation of shamatha vipashyana. We will become familiar with this practice and deepen our experience and understanding, both individually and as a group.

There will be short talks and guided meditations on the Buddhist teachings of the Four Reminders and bodhicitta, and the Shambhala wisdom of basic goodness and kindness.

Individual meditation instruction interviews will be offered during the retreat.

This will be a joyful bi-lingual gathering mainly offered in English, with some talks in French and translation offered between both languages.  Please indicate in the comment box what your main language is.
