Exploring the classical teachings of Insight Meditation, (Vipassana) this retreat is suitable for beginners and experienced meditators. For beginners, there will be ongoing opportunities to ask questions and receive meditation guidance based on what is right for you. Daily there will be meditation instructions, guided meditations, talks, walking, chanting, sitting meditation and a yoga and/or qigong period. There will be times for 1-1 interviews with Anton throughout the day where you can explore on a more private and personalised level what is happening for you.
This retreat will be held in noble silence except for interviews and question and answer periods. For beginners, please note that noble silence does not exclude common sense communication in times of emergency or at times when communication is needed to clarify meditation or work period instructions. This will be part of the instructions.
Giving of service or Karma yoga ~ Insight meditation retreats are fully run by volunteers, no one gets paid for the work they do. In this way we are able to keep the costs down. Therefore In the same spirit we ask that everyone who comes to our retreats contributes one hour of their time each day towards the running of the retreat. This may be anything from washing up, veggie chopping, cleaning or something else connected with running the retreat. We thank you in advance.
The retreats we run are not for profit and we rely totally on the good will of organisers and volunteers to make a retreat like this happen. If you would like to assist in any way, please send us an email and let us know how you might be able to help. Specifically we are looking for assistance with
- Flyer distribution and promotion
- Lifts to Kallara for people without cars and to keep the sharing culture alive
