From Emptiness to Wholeness with Sue Cooper @ Dharmagiri Insight Meditation Centre
Sep 26 – Oct 1 all-day
From Emptiness to Wholeness with Sue Cooper @ Dharmagiri Insight Meditation Centre | Underberg | KwaZulu-Natal | South Africa

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.

Cost: R2450.00 to R2950.00 plus donations for teacher and managers

Insight Dialogue with Ajahn Sukhacitto & Janet Surrey @ Dharmagiri Insight Meditation Centre
Dec 6 – Dec 10 all-day
Insight Dialogue with Ajahn Sukhacitto & Janet Surrey @ Dharmagiri Insight Meditation Centre | Underberg | KwaZulu-Natal | South Africa

This retreat will introduce the meditation guidelines of Insight Dialogue and offer an opportunity to explore the possibilities of a fully engaged co-meditation practice. We will explore the origins of suffering as well as the great potential of cultivating together  the factors of awakening, including mindfulness, concentration, equanimity, loving kindness and compassion.  We will investigate Speaking and Listening as meditative practices held and nourished by the deep foundation of silent practice. There will be periods of silent practice, alternating with meditation together in dyads, triads and small groups.

The Buddha described spiritual friendship as the “whole of the holy life.”  In this retreat we will contemplate the qualities and power of our fundamental human rationality and investigate our capacity for cultivating spiritual friendship in the service of awakening together on the Noble Eightfold Path.

Cost: R2150.00 to R2550.00 plus Dana to teachers & managers
