An immersive week with the Buddha’s intimate and direct instructions for full awakening as handed down in the 16 stanzas of the Anapanasati Sutta. We will especially spend time with the final four wisdom or vipassana instructions as a doorway to the open dimension of being.

The retreat will primarily emphasise periods of silence and meditation, augmented by practices of insight enquiry and ritual.
