This retreat focused on the four close applications of mindfulness, which form the foundation of Buddhist insight practice.

These include mindfulness of the body, feelings, mental states, and mental objects investigating the nature of these features of our existence, probing into the very nature of human identity and the possibility of freedom. A central theme is the cultivation of discerning mindfulness which allows us to increasingly distinguish between phenomena presented to our senses and the conceptual projections that we impose on reality.

The retreat took place from 24th August to 31st August 2017 in Wales.

The retreat was filmed by Wisdom Academy. It will be made into an online course. Details to follow.
