Awakening Inner Peace and Freedom, an Insight Meditation Retreat in Silence with Yanai Postelnik:
Insight Meditation connects us with our capacity to be present in each moment, with an open-hearted attention to every experience. From this quality of being present, kindness and clarity begin to naturally deepen in the heart. Wisdom born of seeing the truth of our experience reveals a natural peace and freedom in the heart, together with a genuine love and compassion oneself, for others, and for all of life. Through understanding that we are not separate, we can come to know what it means to awaken in the midst of our life, to be deeply connected to our experience, and yet not bound by it.
Also known as Vipassana, Insight meditation is rooted in the 2500 year-old Buddhist tradition, and has a deep and immediate relevance to our lives today. It is open and accessible to people of any or no religious affiliation.
The retreat will be an opportunity to engage in sustained meditation practice, in an atmosphere of silence with teachings and meditation
instructions on bringing awareness, clarity and kindness to every part of our experience. There will be formal sitting, walking and standing
meditation, as well as opportunities for meetings with the teacher.
For dormitory accommodation, including bedlinen, towels, use of the facilities etc and vegetarian food (organic where possible) & refreshments, and a contribution toward Kirsten’s travel expenses is £155. The teachings will be offered on a donation basis (Dana) and are not included in the price of the retreat.
Yanai is giving his time, energy and wisdom freely. You will have the opportunity to show your appreciation of this at the end of the retreat, when you will be able to make a donation.
To offer and receive without a price helps us to cultivate trust in life and to connect with generosity as a spiritual value.
