Ascension: Four Day Online Insight Meditation Retreat

Wed 20 – Sun May 24, 2020

Charles Genoud, Patricia Genoud and Yuka Nakamura


During this retreat we will deepen our understanding of insight practice, developing mindfulness of the mind and the body, contemplating and exploring their qualities in each moment. As wisdom unfolds, the nature of experience will reveal itself enabling an inner transformation.
The retreat will allow us to trust in what lies beneath the surface of habitual tendencies, gently opening and relaxing the heart through the cultivation of loving kindness.

This online retreat will offer instructions for sitting, walking and standing meditations, dharma talks and optional interviews with the teachers. It offers participants valuable support in practising at home in a sustained way.
