This retreat offers a new style of Insight Meditation that employs the “Nine Bodies of Consciousness” map. The focus of this practice is on developing mindfulness of the felt sense of embodied experience. Accessing the felt sense allows you to directly experience the various capacities of consciousness, including intuitive awareness. This method of practice fosters the natural arising of insight.
This distinct teaching style will be unfamiliar to first-time “Nine Bodies Insight” practitioners, and the primary teaching method is two daily, detailed 45-60 minute guided meditations. Potential participants are strongly encouraged to listen to guided meditations ahead of time to experience this style of practice. Guided meditations from last year’s retreat can be found here.
This retreat will be held in noble silence except for the guided meditations, talks, and teacher-led practice support meetings. This retreat is not recommended for those experiencing acute grief or other strong mental or emotional challenges.
