“Now this, monks, is the noble truth of suffering: birth is suffering, aging is suffering, illness is suffering, death is suffering; union with what is displeasing is suffering; seperation from what is pleasing is suffering… in brief, the five aggregates subject to clinging are suffering.”
~ The Buddha
SN 56:11

This retreat is to introduce beginners to vipassana meditation.  We request only those who have no formal meditation experience register.  All retreats are considered silent retreats with the exception of Dhamma talks, question and answer periods.  Bhante Seelananda and the monastic community, Bhante Mangala, Bhante Pannaratana and Bhante Jayasara will share in leading the Dhamma talks and Q & A’s periods.  If you have any questions about your eligibility, please contact our office. 


Registration opens at 3:00pm in the Dining Hall. Please arrive to allow enough time to complete registration here and settle in before the retreat begins. All retreats end after lunch on the last day.
Although every retreat is slightly different here is a typical retreat daily schedule.
