Insight Meditation Retreat

With Dave Smith, 8 – 13 February, 2015: During this five-day Insight Meditation retreat we will focus our attention on our breath, body, heart and mind. The instructions will be based upon the Four Foundations of Mindfulness in combination with exercises in loving-kindness and compassion.

Meditating For Insight

We try to include 3 components to our meditation here at New Life: concentration practice to calm our ‘monkey mind’, Vipassana or ‘insight’ meditation to gain wisdom, and heart-opening practices like Metta or ‘loving-kindness’ meditation to bring warmth, kindness, joy and compassion into our practice.
