28-Day Satipatthana Retreat

with Patrick Kearney

January 17 - February 14, 2025

Program is fully booked

Patrick teaches satipaṭṭhana, the way of mindfulness, in the lineage of Mahasi Sayadaw. 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).

This retreat is designed for experienced practitioners who feel independent in their practice, to the degree that they can be confident in their ability to maintain their practice with the minimum of external support’.
