Before long, knowledge and insight into impermanence, suffering, and emptiness will arise. This is the beginning of true wisdom, the heart of meditation, which leads to liberation. Follow your experience. See it. Strive continuously. Know the truth. –Ajahn Chah, Thai Forest Teacher (1918-1992)

From a basis in settling our minds, emotions, and bodies, we will focus on what Rob Burbea calls “seeing that frees.” We examine closely three general, universal patterns of experience. We learn to notice more fully and be more with the impermanent flow of experience. We see more clearly how we are reactive, how we suffer. And we track increasingly when and how there is a “thick” sense of self. As we practice these ways of seeing clearly, we also tune into a further way of seeing—through an open, spacious, and luminous awareness, beyond fixation on any part of the impermanent flow, beyond reactivity and the thick self. We’ll balance this training in clear seeing with grounding in the body, in part through (optional) Qigong, and in kindness and compassion.

 Prerequisite: Retreatants must have completed at least two 5-day or longer silent Insight Meditation retreats or have the permission of the teacher.
