“Tamed, he is supreme among those who tame;
At peace, he is the sage among those who bring peace;
Freed, he is the chief of those who set free;
Delivered, he is the best of those who deliver.”
AN 4:23

Teacher: Bhante Gunaratana & the Monastic Community

This retreat uses basic mindfulness (vipassana/insight) practice as a springboard for the reality of the mind.  The practice will include sitting, walking and standing meditation.  All retreats are considered silent retreats with the exception of Dhamma talks, question and answer periods including optional teacher interviews.  Bhante Gunaratana and the monastic community, Bhante Mangala, Bhante Pannaratana and Bhante Jayasara will share in leading the Dhamma talks and Q & A’s periods.


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.
