Nine day retreat led by Patrick Kearney

10 Mar to 19 Mar 2017 Waiting list only

Course code: PK1-17
Cost: $785

Patrick has over 30 years experience in Buddhist meditation, in both the Zen and Theravada traditions. Since 1984 he has trained in vipassana (insight) meditation in the lineage of Mahasi Sayadaw of Burma. His teachers have included Robert Aitken Roshi, Christopher Titmuss, Sayadaw U Pandita, Sayadaw U Lakkhana, Sayadaw U Janaka, John Hale, Sayadaw U Vivekananda and Sayadaw U Tejaniya.

Patrick teaches satipaṭṭhāna, the way of mindfulness, in the lineage of Mahāsī Sayādaw. He emphasises the cultivation of a felt continuity of awareness by tracking the elemental flow of experience that lies beneath our habitual concepts and reactions. As we become intimate with what is already present we discover the radical simplicity of the practice, and we learn to “live independently, not clinging to anything in the world” (Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta MN 10).

Starting time: Friday after 4pm for a 7pm start
Finishing time: Saturday at 1pm with lunch
