Event description

Description

Join Namchak Khen Rinpoche for an intimate weekend meditation retreat focusing on a practice that will help clear your filter and get to the essence of your true self. This retreat will focus on the simple, time-tested practice of insight meditation or Vipassana. If mindfulness meditation (or Shamata) is like mowing down the weeds as they crop up in our minds, we can use insight meditation (Vipassana) to pull them out by the roots. We do this by penetrating through the appearances of things, to the essential nature of the outer world we’re perceiving, and the essential nature of the perceiver—ourselves.

Spend a weekend learning this time honored and scientifically proven technique to gain real freedom by stepping ever more into your true self.
