Description

AN INTENSIVE VIPASSANA MEDITATION RETREAT.

The most unique aspect of Buddhism is the teaching of anattā - that there is nothing which is absolutely and eternally who we are. Recognizing this truth frees us from the burden of self-attachment and results in boundless joy; however, it is exceptionally difficult and subtle. Ajahn Puṇṇadhammo, a senior monk from the Thai Forest Tradition, will guide us through methods of developing anattā-saññā - the direct perception of not-self.

This retreat is intensive--there are strict guidelines of noble silence (no talking), no cell phone use, and no leaving the retreat center grounds. It is recommended that participants have prior experience in meditation (e.g. having taken a class or meditate at home).

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

Ajahn Punnadhammo, born and raised in Canada, has been practicing Buddhist meditation for almost 40 years, and has been a Buddhist monk for 25 years. He was ordained and trained in the Ajahn Chah lineage of the Thai forest tradition, and has been the abbot of Arrow River Forest Hermitage since 1995
