Renunciation – blessed simplicity with Ajahn Amaro

9 August 2020 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The English word ‘renunciation’ carries with it connotations of diminution and lack – giving up something that you are used to, or that you really like. The Buddhist reading of the word evokes more the quality of simplicity and is tied to the insight into anattā and its attribute of ‘non-owning’. This day will look at feelings of owning, entitlement, complication and dependency, as well as explore meditation practices and activities that lead to inner and outer simplicity and independence.

This day will include periods of sitting (some guided) and walking meditation, Dhamma talks and Q&A. The participants will be encouraged to maintain noble silence.


Events at London Insight are offered in a spirit of generosity. The price you pay goes towards the running of the event but does not include any payment to the teachers for their teaching. Instead our teachers rely on the generosity of participants for their livelihood. You will be invited to make a financial contribution  – click here for more information.
