The retreat will highlight mindfulness and insight meditation practice using the core teachings of the Buddha, which will primarily be through listening to recorded Dharma talks by valued and respected Dharma teachers, with occasional dharma reflections and guidance from Jaya and Chandasara. There will be a spacious daily schedule, weekly community check-ins and one to one meetings with the teachers. In Dharmagiri tradition and weather permitting, we will have a weekly silent walking day in the mountains for those who wish to participate. Also available will be qi gong, with some chanting to help support practitioners.

The essential art of walking – this most ordinary activity of daily life – has been degraded into mindless, extreme exercise. As we change this conditioned mindset, we can restore the poise and elegance of body-mind. In this retreat, we will learn the basics of good body management in daily life as we sit, stand, bend, walk and do what we do. These basic activities are hugely compromised by the stresses and challenges of our lives and times, including sedentariness and techno-speed, resulting in strain, injury (back pain being the norm), diminished attention-focus and performance. Current research reveals the all-round benefits in walking and walking well. We will re-learn walking as nature designed it – effortlessly, gracefully, consciously – in an atmosphere of quiet attentiveness, thereby restoring our inherent poise, grace and kindness. Natural conscious walking then becomes an art, a therapeutic life skill which leads to health and well-being. This is meditation-in-action: a mindful body and embodied mind

This 5-night retreat will be held in a contained and nurturing atmosphere of contemplative silence, and will explore the concepts of emptiness and not-self, which reveal the profoundly paradoxical nature of the Buddhist path of healing and transformation. Drawing on an understanding of the transient and insubstantial nature of our sensory experience, we will learn how to transform our addictive, limited notions of ourselves to experience greater wholeness and inner freedom.
