Three-week Vipassana Retreat

with Ariya Baumann

March 7 - 30, 2025

The practice of vipassanā meditation leads to a profound understanding of reality and ultimately to complete liberation. Through ‘seeing clearly’ (vipassanā) all experiences and processes in body, heart and mind, false views and concepts are exposed and right view is established.

The gradually emerging understanding and insight into the true nature of all phenomena weaken the suffering and unwholesome habitual patterns in the heart and mind. The result is an ever-increasing inner freedom to act in the world for the benefit of all living beings (including oneself).

With the overcoming of all suffering and unwholesome states of mind, wisdom blossoms fully, accompanied by compassion, kindness and benevolence for all living beings.

This retreat can be taken with five, or eight precepts (no meals taken after midday).
