8-Night Meditation Retreat: The Sure Hearts Release with Kamala Masters

August 31, 2017 - September 8, 2017


Kamala Masters will again bring us her beautiful heart and wise understanding for an 8 night meditation retreat:

“In this retreat, we’ll explore the gradual steps laid out by the Buddha that lead to the sure heart’s release: the purification of conduct, the purification of mind through concentration and insight,  and the basic stages of insight knowledge that lead to the transformation of the mind/heart. Many of the teachings will draw from the path to awakening as described in the late Mahasi Sayadaw’s “Manual of Insight”, a newly translated and recently published by Wisdom Publications. These inseparable and mutually reinforcing Dhamma understandings cultivate unshakable faith in the efficacy of the Buddha’s teachings to experience unconditional happiness and peace.

The retreat will be held in Noble Silence, and will include complete instructions for sitting and walking meditations, Dharma talks, guided loving kindness meditations, Q&A, group and individual practice discussions, mindful work periods, eating and resting as opportunities to maintain continuous awareness. The daily schedule will be alternate periods of sitting and walking, with opportunities for more open periods of practicing depending on individual needs.”

Cost: Registration fees are $750. A minimum $300 deposit is required to secure your spot. The remaining balance is due by August 21, 2017. Late balances incur a $20 late fee. Please make checks out to DZIMC.

Compensation for the teacher and staff is not included in the registration fees. There will be an opportunity to offer dana/donations to the teacher and retreat manager at the end of the retreat.
