Vipassana insight meditation in the Mahasi tradition with Bhante Bodhidhamma

18 October 2020 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Mahasi Sayadaw of Burma, one of the most influential meditation teachers of the last century, developed a combination of techniques, primarily noting and going slow, to develop the steadiness of attention needed for insight into the impermanence, unsatisfactoriness and not-self. Such insights lead to the liberation of all suffering.

A day of practice with Bhante, chanting the precepts, periods of sitting and walking meditation and time for questions and answers.
