Insight Meditation Retreat with Khenpo Tenzin
Oct 13 – Oct 19 all-day

Our 7-day Vipassana Retreat, led by Venerable Khenpo Tenzin, will focus on mindfulness. Like all Vipassana retreats we will live for seven days in silence – retreatants do not speak to one another, nor is writing or reading allowed. This is to create an environment conducive to deep reflection, encouraging retreatants to stay with their present experience as it unfolds, moment to moment. In this silent, mindful environment, awareness sharpens, the body quiets, the mind clears, and space opens for insight and understanding to develop. Our retreat schedule will follow the traditional format of the Goenka retreats.
COST – $500   Includes tuition and all meals.
This is a residential retreat and participants are required to stay on site.
Various accommodations are available upon request for an additional fee.
