AWARENESS, INSIGHT & LIBERATION
6/2/2017 - 11:59 PM at Bethlehem Retreat Centre, (2371 Arbot Road, Nanaimo, BC, V9R 6S9) (Map It)
Note: Arrival time is 3:30PM Friday May 26th.
This seven night retreat is suitable for both new and experienced meditators and will integrate the precise meditation instructions of Mahasi Sayadaw with the practical awareness-oriented guidance of Sayadaw U Tejaniya, both highly skilled monastic teachers from Burma. Steve will offer a clear path for developing clarity of awareness with each arising moment. This leads to stability of mind and the insightful knowledge of liberation. Relaxed, persevering continuity of mindfulness allows us to recognize each moment’s experience, and leads to insightful understanding of the natural order of all things. Such knowledge weakens deeply conditioned habits of mind that cause unhappiness, and strengthens conditions for an enduring sense of well-being. Liberation is the mind released from mental states that result in suffering to oneself and others. People of all walks of life are warmly welcome.
