Nine day retreat with Patrick Kearney

9 Feb to 18 Feb 2018 Waiting list only

Course code: PK1-18
Cost: $835

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).

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.

This retreat is suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators

Starting time: Friday after 4pm for a 7pm start
