Led by Bodhiketu + Maitreyi
The Contemplation of the Six Elements is a fundamental insight practice. By bringing awareness to the five elements of form, and by contemplating them in the light of the lakshanas, we can release our identification with them. Similarly with the element of Consciousness; however, in this stage of the practice, we can also examine the five omnipresent mental events to undermine our identification with the mind. The precision of this approach supports us in releasing self-clinging and can lead to an experience of genuine freedom.
The retreat will be mainly in silence so that everyone can follow their own inspiration. There will also be presentations, group discussion about the meditation, and devotional practice.
Please note, Manjuvajra is no longer able to join this retreat.
