Vipassanā means to see things as they really are - it is clear insight into the nature of our minds, and ultimately, into the nature of reality itself. Experiencing such insight relies on developing an extraordinary level of mindfulness, as well as the ability to abide peacefully with whatever thoughts or sensations arise.
In this weekend meditation retreat, we will be led through practices that cultivate mindfulness and clarity by one of Chenrezig Institute’s most senior and accomplished teachers - Thubten Yeshe. TY will show us how create the conditions necessary for the arising of insight, and how to use these practices to achieve freedom and lasting happiness. The retreat will be conducted in complete silence and will involve long periods of sitting meditation.
It is highly recommended for intermediate and advanced practitioners and is a golden opportunity to really deepen your meditation practice! TY Alexander studied in Nepal and India, ordained as a Buddhist nun and remained ordained for nine years. TY has since lived and worked in Buddhist centres around the world. In 1985 she moved to Australia, where she teaches, lead retreats and engages in other work within Buddhist centres.
