The Centers for Mindfulness & Insight Meditation in Redding, CT and Wenham, MA will team up to hold a 5-day Mahasati meditation retreat from Thursday, October 10 to Monday, October 14. The retreat will be lead by Thai Forest monks and meditation masters Achan Da, and Achan Niphen, and Psychologist, Michael Bresnan, at the Wisdom House retreat center, which is situated on 54 acres of meadows, woods and brooks in the beautiful northwest hills of Connecticut.
This retreat is highly recommended and provides an excellent opportunity to deepen your meditation practice by allowing you to cultivate self-awareness for an extended period of time without distraction. While the retreat will be conducted mainly in silence, there will also be Dharma talks and question and answer periods. As is the tradition with meditation retreats, all attendees will have a private interview period with Achan Da as a further aid to their practice.
Wisdom House provides an excellent atmosphere for meditation. Our retreat will take place in a separate 18th century New England farmhouse thus ensuring the group’s privacy during the weekend. Wholesome and delicious meals are served, including breads and desserts baked on the premises by the Wisdom House staff chef.
The retreat begins at 7:00 PM on Thursday evening, October 10, and concludes at 1:00 PM Monday afternoon, October 14. The cost for the retreat is $75 per night for double occupancy, and $100 per night for single occupancy, and covers room and board. Partial attedance is allowed, but a 2-night minimum is required. Partial scholarships are available based on need. A $100 deposit is requested to register. There are a limited number of spots for this retreat. For more information, please contact Michael.
