Sangha, Solace, and Meditation: Insight Meditation Retreat
Since the time of the Buddha, community (sangha) has played a vital role in meditative development. Current events responsible for the uncertainty and restrictions that we now live with have reshaped our relationship to one another, our various communities, and our access to the Dharma, the teachings of the Buddha. In this summer retreat with Chris Crotty, we will gather together (in-person or virtually) for periods of meditation practice, reflection, and discussion. Meditation instructions in insight (vipassana) will be given for both sitting and walking meditation, and Chris’s teachings will explore how meditative insight can help us develop effective strategies for uncommon challenges.
The retreat is open to everyone; beginners welcome and encouraged. Your participation
Loving-kindness Retreat 2021
with The Venerable Sayadaw U Indaka, Chris Crotty, May Myint Oo
Dates: June 1-6 (5 nights)
Location: Won Dharma Center, Claverack NY
Registration: Boston Meditation Center
The practice of loving-kindness (mettā-bhāvana) includes sitting and walking meditation to cultivate a loving, friendly, and benevolent attitude towards all living beings. For over 2600 years, loving-kindness meditation has been practiced to ensure that good-will surpasses all forms of enmity and ill-will. The well-being of mettā is a natural support for the development of insight and wisdom.
In this unique retreat, participants will have the opportunity to be guided by
Burmese meditation master, The Venerable Sayadaw U Indaka, who is renowned in Burma as both a mettā and vipassanā teacher. He will be joined by Western teacher Chris Crotty and Burmese translator May Myint Oo.
This fifth annual retreat will take place at the beautiful and spacious Won Dharma Center in Claverack, NY, where nature will play an important and supportive role in our meditation practice. Beginners and experienced students welcomed and encouraged.
