Ocean of Breath, Ocean of Love Insight Meditation Retreat

Ocean of Breath, Ocean of Love
Insight Meditation Retreat

Friday March 11th - Thursday March 17th 2021

Teachers: Ellen Davison and Lizzie Turnbull
Venue: Sangsurya Retreat Centre, Byron Bay

In the Anapanasati Sutta we find the Buddha’s guidance on mindfulness of breathing. Following, resting into and enjoying the breath supports an easeful and tranquil way of being. The body relaxes and the mind becomes clear. This is so supportive. We settle, we become peaceful and we learn to release and let go of what is unhelpful, of what prevents wholeness. From this we learn to meet experience in loving presence, skilful understanding and wide-open awareness.

This silent retreat offers the opportunity to deepen one’s practice and settle into our innate nature. It is suitable for both beginners and more advanced practitioners.

The schedule includes guided meditations, Dharma talks, sitting and walking meditation, inquiry and somatic practices.
